Then WHY am I still in this headgear???
Oh, yes, Mom - I AM thankful too.
But remember I have a birthday next week - surely I won't be coned for THAT!!!
Mom here: The staples came out, but the area where the drainage had scabbed over posed a challenge for staple removal. So the surgeon's assistant says a few more days in the cone would be a good thing. The area is going to be itchy, and there is NO doubt that Mischievous Misty will try to get at it. But we are all thankful that so far things are going so well for her. She sees the surgeon next week and will have x-rays done to see how the repair is looking. Then we can start to plan for surgery #2. I am not pushing for it; I am more than willing to let some more healing time go by before we tackle the other knee.
Woos - Misty (mischievous???, ME???) and Mom
