Quick Update

Good morning!

Just a quick little update on Rick,since I have lots to do today.Rick's surgery went really well. His knees were worse than they thought,based on the xrays. Dr Bernini said that in some areas,there was nothing,it was bone on bone.Rick had been saying it felt like that for the last couple of years. The surgery took 1 1/2 hours, with one Dr one each leg,and a team of 8 in the operating room.He should be up and starting to walk with a walker today,and beginning his exercises.His hospital stay should be 3-5 days,and we are hoping he won't have to go to a rehab facility for a few days afterward. He (and we!) want him to come home. I can care for him here.

Thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes. There is a long road ahead,but we are happy that we can go down it!

My Mom and I are going to visit him tomorrow.Today I am playing catch up with the house,and Zach has a chorus concert tonight.

Have a great day!
