Casey's car is covered under warranty. What a great relief that is for us. It's my prayer that Casey will be able to trade it in for something that gets more than 10 miles a gallon, but he's fighting it since that car belonged to his 'Pop' and he and Charlie were absolutely crazy about their Pop. The dealership is going to start work on it on Monday replacing the gaskets. I'll let you know.
Casey went with me for my surgery Thursday morning. We sat in the waiting room and watched A Knight's Tale (my favorite movie) on Casey's laptop until they called me to prep. The only thing that bothered me about the surgery was the thought of needles, can't stand needles. After they got the iv going, the worst was over for me. My surgeon, Dr. Sutker, said they repaired the tear, shaved off the torn cartilage and sanded down the bones. He said, due to arthritis in that knee, that I'm probably looking at an artificial knee down the road. Me, I'm doubling up on my glucosamine. :) I was home by 4:30'ish and slept most of the day. We went back the next morning to my surgeon so he could check my incisions and my bandages. All looked good. They showed me some exercises and told me I'd start to wean myself off of the crutches in a couple of days. I do love a challenge and I started walking (short distances) without them that evening. Of course, the vicodin helps. Today I'm not using them at all. Really working on the exercises. Mostly because I start physical therapy on Tuesday and I want to make the pain as little as possible, so I'm trying to get it as strong as possible before then. I was told I can't go back to work until next Friday, so, I've got nothing to do but exercise it...and read, which I am really looking forward to.
So it's all good! We want to thank y'all for your prayers. Can't stress enough the power of prayer. God is faithful!
