She's spending one night in the hospital, mainly so Physical Therapy can work with her tomorrow before she goes home. It's amazing what the benefits of not having conventional anesthesia are. She's not groggy, she has a full appetite, just ate a very good dinner. She's fully cognizant, two pharmacists just came in to ask about her usual daily meds and she was able to understand and answer all their questions easily, etc. She is beginning to feel a little pain since the nerve block is wearing off, but oral pain meds should handle that.


The difference between this and recovering from full anesthesia is night and day. This orthopedic surgeon has never done anything like this in his 35 years as a surgeon. We might be onto something here.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

If all goes as planned, she will be coming home today. Whenever she is gone for a day or two, the dogs act like they think I killed her. They will be happy to see her.

She's home and resting comfortably with her dogs.

Now all we have to do is get through six to eight weeks without putting weight on her right leg.

Hope her healing goes quickly and she is better than preop.

Yes, but she will mostly be using a walker around the house. Steps are the main difficulty for now.

Doing well. She's getting around the house pretty well with a walker, but it's going to be awhile until she can walk. Pain is less than she expected and she is pretty much handling it with Tylenol.

Good thing I know how to cook, do laundry, etc., because for the next month or so I'll be doing everything around the house.

Good excuse to cut back on the drinking for awhile, too.

Kudos!!!

Hope she heals quickly. If I had a hubs that did all that I might take a few X~tra days to recoup.
