Hello all, after being put in my proper place by boosty the other day on the phone, i am making time to post now I have missed you guys very much and am glad to be making time to be back on here!
Anyways, today I am having knee surgery so i will be out a few days. Please keep the thoughts and prayers with me. I know its gonna be easy but im nervous as all can be and have never had surgery before!
It has been a rough couple of days!! First yesterday my dad & I broke down in Memphis (100 miles from home) while trying to tow Jeff'* bonne back home. We broke down at 3:30 pm and didn't get a ride home until 7:30 pm. Then I had to be up at 6 am to go pick up Jeff to take him to surgery. He made it through fine. They even gave him a cooler that has hoses that circulate cold water around his knee. He is taking percoset every 4 hours (7.5/500) so he is keeping the pain tolerable. When he got out of surgery they gave him demarol then I asked them to give him something else so they gave him daluadid (sp??) and that didn't work so 5 minutes later I asked them to give him another shot of it. It seemed to take the edge off. Then they gave him a percoset to get him home. I've got to give him a percoset every 4 hours throughout the night so I won't be going to work tomorrow. He'* being a good patient so far.
