Dad is resting for the first time in 20 years!!!

Today Dad went to Providence hospital and received a brand new meniscus, well almost brand new ( a mended one) the doctor said he would recover in a couple days but when he saw dad's knee in surgery it ended up being worse than what they thought. (Stapley Luck- or lack of) The meniscus was torn and the bone underneath was worn so they had to drill a little into his bone, don't worry I have pictures for everyone. Within a couple hours dad was home and watching AMC on TV. He's feeling no pain, except for emotional when I beat him in a hardcore game of cribbage! He will be on crutches for a month or so and will be back to work in two weeks. He hasn't eaten much, but has not slowed down in the usual mountain dew consumption. He is bored to tears and would love to talk to anyone willing!!! Love ya'll-Kaci- This picture shows the holes that were drilled in his bone :) cool huh?
