Knee Surgery

Tuesday update: hobbled around a little with a walker and headed home tomorrow afternoon. Doctor was very proud of how well he did with my complicated leg and knee injuries and is going to give me an autographed x-ray!

Out of surgery after 2 hours with a brand new knee. No problems. First walk tomorrow, home on Thursday. Mayo Clinic does almost 1% of all knees replaced in the USA. Mayo has wireless so I am happy!

I go into Mayo at 6:30 Monday to have my new right knee put in. With luck, should have it in by afternoon. I will be home sometime Thursday if all goes well.
Margo's dad is home and starts rehab Monday after his bypass surgery. Margo plans to be there a few weeks.
