Susan was supposed to have her ACL reconstruction surgery today. If all had gone according to plan, I would be reporting on the surgery right now.

Unfortunately, the surgery got bumped for a week. Our orthopedist was on call this past weekend, and had a very difficult weekend. He had something like 17 serious fractures to deal with, a number of which required nearly immediate surgery in order to allow the patients to begin the healing process. Consequently, all of his non-essential surgeries for today–including Susan–had to be postponed.

Needless to say, this was NOT happy news. We both wanted to get it over with, so that Susan could be on the road back to having a normal and healthy knee. Sadly, we now have another week of the immobilizer, the crutches, a weak, wobbly knee, and general unhappiness.

Stay tuned. Sadly, there’s another chapter to this saga. 🙁

    God love her……it has to be frustrating to keep getting the surgery put off. Tell Susan we’ll keep her in our prayers and hope she has a speedy recovery.

    Wow, sorry about that Eric – I know how much you two (especially Susan I’m sure) wanted this to be over and done with. Let’s hope soon you both can look back on this and laugh, but I know for right now it must be frustrating as hell. Hang in there and let her know we’re all thinking of her.
