Long day today...we had to be at the hospital by 11:30, left the house at 10:30. Got Stu registered and they took him back to get prepped. A little more than an hour later they came and got me to come sit with him for the next hour.
Well the next hour turned into two, he didn't get taken to surgery till 3:15. They were done and he was in recovery until 7:05 when they moved him into the recovery room. His doctor said things went very well, no problems or issues encountered and he anticipated a good recovery.
I managed to snag some dinner in the cafeteria after I talked to doctor. When I came back, they had his room assignment so I moved there for the next 90 minutes until they finally wheeled Mr. Loopy into his room at 9:05.
He's on good drugs, self administered right now. He is in a fair amount of pain and was getting ready to enjoy some ginger ale when I left at 9:30. Got home around 10 and found the heat had kicked off....and it's 40 outside. Brrrr.....
All snuggled in now, heat running, enjoying getting my feet up for a bit and then getting a good night's sleep. Tomorrow I will head back to the hospital in time to see his physical therapy session. Not sure when we will find out if he will go to rehab for a few days or come straight home. We're hoping for rehab but it all depends on the insurance approvals.
More later...as time allows. Just wanted everyone to know that he made it through with flying colors!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
