Took my sister to the hospital at 08:30am, she was scheduled for surgery at 10:30am, she said it was supposed to take about 4 hours and since we live a block from the hospital she wanted my to go home and wait and when she was done she would have the nurse call me, I must say I was a little worried but at 03:00PM my cell rang and was the nurse who said Wendy was our of surgery and had done really well, she was going to a room and she gave me the number and then she would be staying at least one night. So I will give them a chance to get her to her room and then go over and see how she is doing and if she needs anything else.
I had a question as to the nature of Wendy’s surgery and I guess in all the excitement I never posted anything, she had to have the bones in her ankle and foot reconstructed. Since birth she has had a condition where her bones are not formed right and weak, about 5 years ago she had one side done, and now the other had bothered her to the point the Doctor said it was time to do the other. She will have to keep that foot and ankle immobile for at least 3 weeks and then they will take the cast off and put her in a boot and she will start therapy, that is why she will be confined to bed for this time. I will probably have to stay until she gets to the point in therapy where she can get around the house some.
I thank you all for your prayers and concern, and I hope this will pass as soon as possible and she will be back on her feet.
Last night Wendy & I met our friends the Ferron’s at Carabas Restaurant in Dunmore PA. It is and old fashioned Italian Restaurant and had great food.
Wendy, Sam, Rich & Barbara.
My niece Barbara & girlfriend Belinda
My niece Barbara & a girlfriend Belinda arrived after Barb got off work and joined us.
I even sampled a PA favorite Yoenglings Lager on tap, not bad a little strong for a High Life Light guy, but I only had one.
Guess that’s it for today, Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.
