Andy went into surgery believing he would be able to walk afterwards (slowly, of course) and came out of surgery being told that he now has 3-6 weeks of non-weight bearing recovery time. He cannot put weight on his left leg and is using crutches. So, he's a little disappointed but handling it well.
We took a family vote and decided not to include pictures from his actual surgery in this blog post (..you're welcome..). But I just cannot contain myself and I must tell you that the piece of the meniscus removed from his knee really resembled a severed, somewhat bloody, pointer finger.
You're welcome :)
Here's the patient:
(Isn't he handsome? Sorry for the poor picture quality, I took it with my phone)
He's moving from here to bed and back again. This afternoon he got out and went to Grandpa's house to watch football while the kids and I ran to town.
His crutches are VERY tall. They come up to just above my nose. (I love my tall fella!).
