Surgery survived

Ste's knee surgery was yesterday. His ACL was reconstructed using a piece of his patellar tendon. That's weird to me. Ligament replaced with a tendon. I suppose I should read up on the differences just to have the knowledge. His meniscus could not be repaired, so they trimmed it up to ensure the fragments can't catch in the joint.

We stayed overnight and he was dismissed at 5:30 this morning. None of us have slept much. Ste's pain has been high today. Watching your child hurt is the pits. Hoping for good rest for him tonight, and less pain with each passing day.

I'm so glad it went well! We have a couple pics of Mike looking like that...He's had knee surgery twice. Hope Ste is feeling better soon!

When can he go back to school?

Hoping and praying for a quick recovery! Young ones heal fast! I understand watching your kid be in pain....when Sara gave birth....hardest/most beautiful thing ever.

Oh Amy! I missed this and I am so sorry.

I hope he's on the mend now.

He's so determined I know he'll be back to his antics in no time.

Now as to Momma's suffering with their kids...yeah...I'm so sorry about that.
