Well it's about time you checked in @BKP! Glad to hear from you :) 

 

Thanks jillar.  You can probably imagine how crazy-busy it's been the last 2 months.  SoCal hospitals are swamped.

Thinking about @Mee's hubby and hoping he's recovering nicely 🤗 

He is still in the hospital so they can get his pain managed before he comes home.  I will be bringing him home tomorrow.  At least this time we know what we are in for.  The first couple of days are the toughest but you can't keep my husband down long.

Oh I forgot you had said he was staying in the hospital. The knee surgeries here are mostly outpatient and done in an outpatient facility.

So get a good nights rest, you're going to be busy 🤗

His surgery was done in the outpatient surgical unit and though he is in the hospital, it is an outpatient area.  Dr likes to keep them at least 23 hrs. (which is still considered outpatient) to treat them with high doses of antibiotics.  My husband stayed an extra day, because they were having a hard time managing the pain because he can only take certain meds.  I am glad he stayed because the care the first couple of days is 24/7.  I am on the way to bring him home now.

A guy at work had his knee replaced last year.  He only missed about ten days of work and walked with a cane for about four weeks.  Seems like the recovery time for that surgery has improved greatly.

 

The "Six Million Dollar Man" references and "we can rebuild him" jokes wore thin after a while, but other than that he's good to go now.

My husband is the six million dollar man.  He has also had 3 rotator cuff and achilles tendon surgery. He did a physical job all his life  I think we probably helped put this doctor's kids through college.  I am so excited about being able to walk the dogs together again.

Good to hear that your hubby doesn't stay down long (that doesn't sound right when I read it back to myself). The people who get up and start walking right away are usually the ones with the best outcomes. Hope you guys are walking the dogs really soon Mee.
