Lou is the Titanium Man
Knee replacement surgery went well today. We started out early, needing to be to the hospital by 6am. It was snowing when we left the house.
Lou walks towards the light…
They were ready for him, starting right in with pre surgery prep and 100 questions:
I fell asleep in the waiting room. And snored. I’m sure. He was in surgery for 2.5 hours. The doctor said he did well. It took a little longer than usual because his knee and bones were bigger than the average bear.
By noon, he was in his private room, able to look out at the snowstorm. He seemed to be feeling good, not in much pain.
I left after he was settled. Teresa had stayed with the pups, but I wanted to take a nap. . Lou was able to get up during the afternoon, and was still feeling good when I went back at 5pm. He even ate all of his dinner -chicken, mashed potatoes, and beets.
Will update more tomorrow.
