Success--and not much pain
It is a little after 8pm and the surgery was successful and my pain level is pretty low. In fact, I haven’t had any additional pain meds and the surgery was over by noon. I am very relieved and I have already had 2 walks and I have done many leg lifts. Dr. Gardner thinks I am doing fine as does the evening doctor, Doctor Cox, who graduated from Monsignor Farrell High School. He was fun to talk to. The bad news is that I have to stay here until Thursday (because of insurance) but I can get through that I am pretty sure. Have contacted my kayak friend, Gyorgyi, Gloria, Cathy, Kelly and Dave.
