Mrs. Major passed all her tests today and is ready for her bilateral knee replacement on Thursday.
Today she did all her pre-op stuff: Checked in at West Marion Community Hospital, had blood drawn, repeatedly answered the same health questions, got her chest x-rayed, and had several people wish her a Happy Birthday when she had to repeat her date of birth to everyone whom she met. Anyway, she passed with flying colors.
We check her into the hospital at 11:00 am on Thursday. Surgery is supposed to be at about 12:30. She will spend three days in the hospital. We’re not sure if that means she will be released on Saturday or Sunday. We’ll keep you posted.
Right now we’re enjoying a moderation in the hot weather we’ve been having. It’s in the high 70’s just now and we’re sitting on the patio, Mrs. Major playing solitaire and I typing away on this blog.
