Tom's surgery went very well. The surgeon told T and I that he couldn't imagine how Tom has continued to walk about on THAT knee... Whatever, He came through with flying colors; was into His room just after noon; has eaten two pretty good meals; and is able to stand and bear weight on the new knee (with the help of a walker). He's already perceiving the pain from the surgery as less than what He experienced on a regular basis before, although He does have a pretty good bolus of pain medication yet from the surgery, and is being managed with oral and intravenous pain medications by the nursing staff here. He'll have a couple of sessions of physical therapy here in the hospital tomorrow, and then we will see how He is. It is likely that He will be home on Sunday, although as it appears tonight, we might even be home in our own beds tomorrow evening.
Thanks for all the good wishes.
