As I write this entry, I an in the lobby of Gulf Breeze Hospital, a member of the Baptist Health Care family of medical centers.
My wife is undergoing a partial knee replacement - her third knee surgery this year. After two 'scopes, an injection program and copious physical therapy, our doctor has decided that this is the best option for her to finally get over the knee problems that have been a thorn in her side for so long.
I'm a little slow, so asked the doctor to draw me a picture. Amazingly, it looked a lot like the one below:
Basically, they are going to readjust the knee joint, put in the two pieces you see in the x-ray image above, and sew it all back up with staples holding the 3-4 inch opening together.
Amazingly, she will be walking on it today!
Most likely we will have an overnight stay so the staff can make sure everything is going according to plan and we'll get to go home tomorrow.
We are praying for a full recovery according to God's good plan (plan bon dew in Creole). And once Nance is all better, I'm going to go in for some adverb therapy.
