Surgery, Finally!

I am writing this post on Thursday, just to let you know.

As you read we are currently at the Hospital with my J. He is FINALLY having his knee surgery. We've been waiting a very long time for this and are very glad it's happening now.

J injured his knee Years ago while playing sports and has been dealing with it ever since. He's re-injured it a couple times since then. Well, I don't know if it's re-injured as much as greatly aggravated the existing injury.

Today (Friday) he's having Arthroscopic surgery. They will make a Small incision and insert a small telescope like instrument inside. The image is transmitted to a video monitor so that they can see what's going on in there. Then they can perform surgical procedures via small incisions around the knee joint.

We're hoping and praying that it isn't anything major and he'll be back on his feet in very little time. I don't work and if he misses much work we're going to be in some (quite a bit) trouble financially.

So, as you go about your day please send prayers and good thoughts our way as we sit in the waiting room. I'll probably tweet from my phone occasionally.

Oh yea, I'm on Twitter. If you're interested in following me I can be found here.
