Mom just got the call from the surgeon's assistant. Surgery is over and went well, as was expected. She said Lightning is awake and doing well. As long as there are no complications, we don't expect to hear any more today. The plan at this point is for Lightning to come home tomorrow morning.
We have a comment on our post from earlier this morning from "2SpecialGoldenDoggies" about their experience with similar surgery for "Neelie". We can't find a way to reach them. If this person sees this post, can you please email Mom at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could be a very big resource for Mom as we deal with Lightning's recovery. Mom is terrified Lightning is going to pop his other knee and really could use some encouragement about dealing with two tears at the same time.
Thanks to all for all your support - it is so very much appreciated.
