Another Long "Surgery" Day

We got to the surgery center around 11AM this morning and just got home about an hour ago.

Zach's knee surgery went very well, his Dr. was able to completely repair is torn ACL and also removed two meniscus tears. The surgery took about 2 1/2 hours, and his Dr. said that this recovery is a "doozy" esp. since he had to dig around a little more than normal. Zach did get a nerve block, but it's didn't block feeling 100% like some people, so it will not last as long as others...but thankfully this will help him some throughout the night. He is having a little pain right now, but it's not his actual knee that's hurting him, it's his hamstring where they took his tendon from. He will be on crutches for 2 week and will have physical therapy 3 times a week.

Right now he is laying on the couch next to me passed out-please say a prayer that he has a speedy recovery and doesn't endure "too" much pain. (I have found out that I have a big ol' baby on my hands :)...ha! But he's my big ol' baby and I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world).

Thank you for all the sweet comments from everyone---ya'll are so amazing!

Also- my mom came to Zach's surgery today, she was using a walker--but she is doing AHHH-MAZING! :)

Our 3 year wedding anniversary is tomorrow and we plan on flying out to Hawaii to relax on the beach----oh ok, so that's me just dreaming-HA!!! :).....we will be at home relaxing on the "couch" not the beach and we will be watching movie after movie. I have taken quite a bit of "cute" blackmail pics of my honey; so I will post some tomorrow---right now I am going to catch up on laundry and lay down, a day doing nothing in a surgery center can sure wear you out :)

Thanks again for all the prayers---GOD IS AMAZING!!!

Oh I got excited about Hawaii for a second there! Don't tease me like that! :) Glad the surgery went well, hope he recovers quickly. Men are big 'ol babies, aren't they? Mine gets a sore throat and the world is over. haha

Glad the surgery went good. I am still praying the recovery isn't to bad or too long. I don't think you are the only one with a big ol baby on your hands! I think all men are babies!!! But you are right they are our babies and we just have to love them and wait on them through it. Hang in there. I am still praying and thanking our awesome God for your mother's progress.

I'm glad everything went well! When I didn't have any messages from you or see a new post I started to worry... What'd I tell ya? Men are babies :) But when you love them you don't mind babying them :) Zach woke up at 11 last night projectile vomiting and I felt bad and wanted to help but there was not much I could do.

Glad surgery went well! I have had the exact same surgery about 2 years ago. Took a lot of work to get back to normal but I can't say that I was in horrific pain. So hopefully he will be ok!
