Well, the knee is blown no more. Susan had her reconstructive knee surgery today.

The doctor fully expected to have to remove the hardware from her first ACL reconstruction on that knee in 1989. Having to do so would be more work and would have caused more pain. Fortunately, he didn’t have to remove either of the old screws from her knee and was able to work around them. The transplant was completed successfully, and he repaired the damage to her meniscus. Everything was done arthroscopically and she is already able to put weight on the leg if she’s in her immobilizer.

Everything went fine. She’s upstairs asleep in percocet land at the moment, and will hoppefully be on the road to recovery tomorrow.

Rehab–the really sucky part–will begin in about two weeks.

For everyone who has asked or sent their best wishes, we really appreciate it.

    Great news Eric. I wish your lovely wife a speedy recovery. And as one who has done plenty of rehab – just tell her to keep her eye on the “finish line” and that it will most certainly pay off in the future. I’m sure she knows that.
