Hey, all. Don’t want to leave anyone hanging for the weekend, so I thought I’d put up a quick post to let you know that Scott’s surgery went well. We were there from about 8:30 this morning until 1:15 this afternoon, but most of that time was spent waiting in various prep/recovery rooms (Scott) or waiting rooms (me). A quick aside — I am not very good at waiting patiently. It definitely made me thankful that my waiting was attached to a probably happy outcome. My heart goes out to any families at the hospital with sadder or scarier tidings awaiting them.
Scott is home now with a gigantic bandage and oh-so-sexy velcro sandal on his foot. Said foot is propped up on two pillows and covered with a blanket while husband takes a recovery snooze. When he wakes up, my guesses are that he’ll be fantastically hungry. He’s already eaten a trial Kashi bar to make sure that his stomach is ready for food, so I’m fully prepared to make (or go get) whatever sounds good to him. In the meantime, a no-longer-as-worried marathon trainee could DEFINITELY use some calories.
Thanks for the prayers and happy thoughts, all. Keep ’em comin’ for a speedy recovery! 🙂
