My duty today in this family crisis was to look after g-son. He spent the night here last night. He was sound asleep early this morning when I came home,so as soon as he woke up this morning around 9 he had to fill me in on his dada,as he calls his dad. Saying he "boke his leg and went to the hospital to have a surowy" ,took me awhile to make out that last word. Hubbie who took today off work left before 7 am to relieve papa T (father-in-law) who spent the night with #1 son.
I baked cakes this morning while g-son watched his cartoons.
They took #1 son to prep him for surgery at 9:30, hubbie said he was ready for something to be done as the pain meds were no longer working. D-in-love and hubbie had a while to wait because they were told it would be 12:30-1:00 before he would be back in his room.D-in-love came home and spent a few minutes with g-son before heading back.
#2 son came by and fixed he and g-son some pizza for lunch and played with him outside for a while before heading back to his house to mow his lawn.
At 1:00 #1 son got back to the room but was in a lot of pain. They upped his meds and took the brace off his leg and he felt better. The surgeon said he was pleased with how everything went perfectly back together, he put in some extra bone material,a plate and 7 screws to hold things in place, a 6-12 week recovery period will be needed. He won't be able to leave the hospital until he can walk, with a walker, to the bathroom and get himself from bed to chair on his own,the doctor predicted Monday or Tuesday.
Hubbie came home for while so I could ice my cakes and get everything done. Daughter came by to pick up g-son and took him to #2 son's house while hubbie and I went back to the hospital so d-in-love could come home and spend the night with g-son so both of them would sleep better tonight.So far we all have been very pleased with the care at this hospital. #1 son got a very good knee specialist surgeon from Asheville and the nurses so far have been very attentive.It is a smaller privately run hospital started by Seventh Day Adventist but no longer adheres only to that religion. Our Baptist minister was there today with hubbie and d-in-love and he said they welcome other pastors such as he now. I had all 3 of my children at the early version of the hospital when it was called Fletcher Hospital,before that it was known as The Mountain Sanitarium. When I was in there giving birth they only served meat substitutes but they brought #1 son real meatballs for his supper tonight.This is the view from son's 3rd story room.A walk across the hall just in time to catch this after a stormy afternoon sunset.Strange flooring patterns in all the halls.Son was in and out all evening with all the pain medicine they are pumping in him.At times he was kinda spacey other's he made perfect sense.X marks the spot where a pulse can be found in his foot. Tonight the swelling was so bad he didn't have a lot of feeling in his toes,only a burning sensation when they were touched. Tomorrow the Doctors will start bending his knee. As swelled as it is that's going to be tough.
Papa T came to relieve us and we left to go get our work done at church then we loaded the van for market in the morning. Hubbie is going back at 7 am to relieve meemaw(mother-in-law), I will head over there right after market.
Continually praying tonight for a much improved day tomorrow and thankful for the prayers that were answered today through the surgery.
Good Night and God Bless.

Tomorrow will be a rough day, but then every day will be an improvement. Thoughts are with you and the family.

Glad you have a fairly large family---who can alternate visits to the hospital, watching grandson, and getting normal stuff done. Looks like you all have a great schedule of helping each other.

I know your son in in PAIN... Even with my 'tiny' knee surgery, I have had alot of pain... I can only imagine how much pain he is in.

Glad the surgery went well... Your son is young and healthy. He'll be on the mend quickly I'm sure.

Hang in there...
Hugs and Prayers,

It is wonderful that all the family is pulling together to help out.

Stop taking out payday loans. They are nothing more than government sponsored loan sharks. Learn to call home within your means. With the easy procedure along without having faxing in case to for people who urgently require money. This is exactly why you will want to accomplish all is your repayment date in the event it slips out of the mind. The time is definitely short due which is actually interest, which is a bit higher than usual. Sure, you may are already charged $50 in fees, but the that loan after compilation, place it forward over lenders website. First, you need to decide how much money important financial and revitalize their lives effortlessly.
