Surgery went well. This time next year I'll be shopping for new shoes! I'm loopy from all the pain meds. Thanks for prayers and good thoughts. Love, Pat

P.S. Hubby is a good nurse!

Hahaha. I don't remember writing my last post. I was really out of it with all the drugs they pumped into me. I'm doing great. Probably because they gave me something that's the equivalent of 10 mg of prednisone. I didn't want to do it, but didn't complain because I knew it would help with inflammation. I've tapered down to 1 mg. Now that's a miracle!

Feel good, but just have to keep my leg elevated for 2 weeks which means no getting out of bed except to go to the potty. Have my TV, my laptop, my Kindle, and my knitting. And my painkillers. So I think it will be a good couple of weeks.

You'll probably be seeing more of me. Which reminds me, I'll give Carol a call and post an update.

Hugs,

Pat

Stay in the house! we have hail stones here that will NOT melt. figured the day I am moving is the worst day this year.sad

Love ya and praying for your quick recovery.
