I wanted to let you all know that my mom is doing very well. The doctor said that she may get to go home Saturday, but it could be as late as Monday. We had originally thought that she would be in the hospital for three to five days, but as it turns out, the surgeon told us that it is a five to seven day time period in the hospital following a total knee replacement.
She is very ready to come home. She has been up and walking a little farther each day with the help of a walker; her vital signs have all been good too. Other than the morphine making her think that her spoon was hurting, she has done amazingly well. I am very proud of her. It is a very painful surgery to go through, and she has come through it like a champ.
Thank you all for your prayers for my mom and my family. We appreciate you all so much.
"I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers."
