…received another call this afternoon from Betsey, and again!….she sounded wonderful!….full of giggles and positive remarks about
her surgeon and the surgery itself.
She said the knee will never be able to to straighten out completely…but she is fine with that. I think she said that she will be moved tomorrow to a "Rehab Center"…and will have to endure 5 to 7 days of PT there. After that, it will be home for a while…and then she is already planning a 30day stay or more back down to Florida in her second home. (I believe I could talk myself into a longer stay..LOL)
All in all,….I think she is doing rather well for as much pain she says she is in…while on med's…a 6…but I never heard her complain about
it. I asked how the nurses were treating her…and she said wonderful!
We like to hear reports like this here on the forum!…and many patients don't fair so well. I know she was pretty apprehensive leading up to the surgery….and she had everything ready…and checked her list thrice!
I'm just glad she got it done, and that she is in a good mood…laughing and all!
Take care my friend!….and don't worry,….. if my wife and I happen to be in Florida while your there….we will certainly come and visit you! Maybe Pete…or Lindaloo are close to where you live, and you all can get together for a visit.
