Big Jim - what an awful thing to go through!
Back from the knee doc. Mrs. C is going in for outpatient surgery tomorrow morning. Wonít know when until she calls the short procedure unit at 3pm. Doc said it would be early so I am betting we will have to be there at either 5am or 6am.
On the walk to the docís office this morning her knee (skin) split open - thatís how much pressure was in her knee. What a mess! She called it a gusher. Good timing however I guess as the doc got to see. He squeezed this want and that - super painful for her. He squeezed out what he could and wrapped her knee in bandages and a big ace bandage. Donít touch it until he gets to her in the morning. He plans to clean it all out and put antibiotic in there somehow.
Then she already has an appointment for Monday morning at the wound clinic. He is having them deal with the incisions to hopefully stop any infection from starting this time. I like that idea.
Thankfully both are at the local hospital 35 miles away and not the farther one.
Thanks for all the positive thoughts everyone. I just hate seeing her go through all this. She has to be the most tolerant person I know - never complains. Is actually in a decent mood now even after all what happened this morning. Me....I would be crying like a baby!
