Re: my knee surgery


wow.... I will have to tell my husband about this. I think he and my son are kind of tired of mom needing them to bring me things. This morning I am even better. I am thinking that I don't really need the crutches... but carry one with me in case I get off center. My husband went out to play in the last men's tournament at the local golf course. I can almost do everything my self. I still need help getting on the CPM machine... but I did figure out how to get out of it at 4 in the morning the other night when I couldn't get anyone to hear me.
I feel very blessed.... lots of prayers were said in my behalf!!!
Thank you for sharing this story.... I am so sorry for them. That has to be so scary and painful. They must have some wonderful insurance, my part of outpatient is 300. It is amazing how much medical care costs. But it is also so wonderful what all they can do!!!

Tricia,
I'm so glad you came through this ok. My friend's husband just had knee surgery Tuesday and he will finally get out of the hospital today if all goes well. I don't understand all the details, but she wrote, "his intestinal system objected to the abuse of surgery and drugs and decided to stage a revolt. Gabe has had a miserable 36 hours putting down the stomach rebellion, A GI specialist was called in and Intravenous fluids were restarted, as of 9 this evening after some very interesting side effects of new drugs the nausea and dizziness has subsided."
Then last night she filled us in on some of the side effects. The staff called her in at 1am because Gabe had had a nightmare or something and had ripped out the IV lines and whatever was on his knees and walked down the hall without his walker. She had to go in and "lay on top of him the rest of the night" so he would stay in bed as they were too short staffed to keep an eye on him. She added that, so far, the hospital bill was over $105,000 which doesn't include doctors' bills. Fortunately, with the new insurance plan she had opted for, their share of everything is only $600.

I made it through and the first night is over. If I can just get used to using crutches this won't be too bad. They gave me a machine that I am suppose to get on every 2 hours for 2 hours. Today I go to the physical therapist to have the drain tube taken out and an ice bladder put on that will circulate ice water around my knee constantly.
I had gone out and taken 120 pictures of my gardens so that while I am down I can still get to the computer to look at them.
We have had wonderful weather for quite awhile so I had time to get almost everything caught up. I had dwarf Alberta spruces in to huge pots by my garage. They had gotten so big that I moved them to other places in the yard and replaced them with "Gold Cone" Junipers. Has anyone ever grown this variety?
Thank you for all of your prayers!
Tricia
