Buena Vista Campground
Over the years Len has had 3 surgeries on his right knee to fix two torn meniscus. Recently the knee has given him increased pain to the point it has been difficult for him to walk. It was time for a total knee replacement.
We came back to NJ as our family doctor, cardiologist and the surgeon who repaired the last torn meniscus ten years ago are all here.
His surgery was on Wednesday. Yesterday he was moved into a rehab center. Thursday he did well. Only took short walks with the walker. Friday a little more. Yesterday more exercises and today even more.
He is now feeling the pain and exhaustion. So am I. I went to the rehab this morning and watched him as he exercised. Once he got back to the room, he slept. So I came back to the campground. I went back this afternoon and helped him shower (wow did he need it). Again he is exhausted and got back in bed to sleep. I came back to the campground. The last two days he has no appetite at all. Eating very little.
Tomorrow is another day. Hoping both the pain goes away and he gets his appetite back.
Thanks for each of you who sent well wishes. It is much appreciated.
