T has had a very good first day. Her pain is minimal thanks to a new medication that the surgeon uses IN THE KNEE to control pain for the first 24 to 36 hours.
She ate a pretty good dinner of chicken soup and macaroni and cheese and grapes.
Her first round of physical therapy went extremely well -- she is already pushing to maximize her use of her new knee.
Her oxygen levels are good and so she is off oxygen and resting comfortably.
She'll start her PT classes tomorrow morning, and hopefully things will continue to progress well.
We'll pass on all your hugs and good wishes -- thank you all.
