Andy hurt his knee back in November when we were finishing up the construction on our house, and we were hoping it would feel better with time. That didn't happen and I finally convinced him to go see a doctor. We have an amazing Orthopedic Surgeon in our new ward, so I made an appointment with him for Andy to get checked out. The verdict: A torn meniscus and Andy was to have knee surgery. Today was the big day.
There is a good reason Andy has a sad face...
For some reason I was worried that things would not go well. I'm not sure why I was so nervous, but I'm happy to say that everything turned out wonderfully. There was a possibility that the damage in his knee was not only a torn meniscus, but possibly a fractured femur as well. If that was the case, the bone would be screwed together and the recovery would be much more difficult.
I am so grateful for modern medicine. His knee was really hurting him, I'm glad that will be over once he heals from the surgery.
I got Andy his favorite soup for dinner, Chicken Tortilla Soup from Zupas. It was delicious! Then while he was sleeping I went out into the yard cut some flowers for him. Ahhh, tender. I know, what I should do is go get him so Peanut M&M's!
Maybe I'll shave his other leg while he is all drugged up. Hehe!
