Son is having surgery.

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I'm getting ready to head to the hospital with my 14 year old son. He has two meniscus tears and his ACL pulled a bone fragment off inside his knee. We have to be there two hours early so we are getting ready to leave.

I've packed three different fruits to snack on. I've brought a book to read and I've eaten 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on wheat for breakfast. I should be good, but I didn't want to eat in front of him since he can't.

Wish us luck and say an extra prayer. I don't like anesthesia,at least the first time they have to have it.

    Thanks to all of you! My son is doing pretty good today. He has some pain, but it is manageable. Overall, he's doing much better. Thanks to all of you for your prayers, positive energy and supportive comments. You all are emoticon !

    Wishing you and your son all the best. My DH has had that surgery multiple times (yup, he only has 2 knees -- but way more than twice) and it's always been painless, completely successful and quick recovery.

    Prayers and best wishes for a full recovery! I have been living with a complete tear of my ACL since I was a teenager. I wish they would have repaired then.
Sounds like you have planned ahead and that is awesome! Go for a walk around the hospital, find the stairs!
