    Thanks all.
    I believed I had already posted a progress report, but I don't see
    one, so will do it again.

    The surgery went well. We left here before 5 a.m. in order to get to
    the hospital for 6 a.m. The surgical prep did not take long, so my
    sister stayed with me until they wheeled me across to the OR area.
    There is a holding area where all the patients wait until they are
    taken to their own respective ORs. I watched as each patient was
    visited by his or her anesthetist and taken off to the OR. No
    anesthetist came to see me, and finally the nurses or whomever,
    wheeled me into OR 5. The OR staff organized the tools and the surgeon
    came in, but no anesthetist! I wondered what would happen if there was
    a mix-up of some sort and none was scheduled for me. I asked and was
    told my anesthetist was excellent at his job, but was chronically
    late. I worried about that given that I was a difficult intubation.
    Eventually he came, and we got started. He had difficulty with my
    veins, but made a judgment that I could be partially sedated before
    intubation. the part that I was so worried about was a non-issue. I
    later asked the surgeon about that he told me the anesthetist made a
    decision to do it that way because he was able to bag me at the point
    of not breathing. Another anesthetist might not have made the same
    call.

    The hospital stay was over with quickly and I am now recovering at
    home. Too much activity takes place on a med-surg floor. People need
    meds or to get up to the washroom and require help. there is little
    opportunity for anyone to rest. I am just as glad to be home.

    the physio for this arm consists of ten minutes each hour of flexing
    and other ROM exercises. I won't have to go to physio but will have to
    be very diligent about doing the exercises myself.

    Glad to get the report directly from you. We know you will be diligent
    about the physio. How's the new elbow feel? Or is it too soon to
    really tell? God bless.

    Thanks all.
    It is too soon too tell. It is early days still really. I know when I
    am due for my next dose of pain meds. My arm is very swollen and
    bruised, at this point. It is probably double the size of the other
    arm and totally bruised from the hand to almost the elbow. Today the
    bruise is turning colors, so there is a bit of yellow, green, blue,
    and purple. The incision line looks good though; no sign of infection
    that I can see. Thankfully, not too many people have seen this.

    It certainly sounds colorful. It's good that there is no sign of
    infection. The first couple of weeks on a replacement of a joint are
    hard, until the swelling goes down. Thanks for letting us know how it
    is going. I will continue to pray for you.

    Rose, I'm thinking of you and hope you're continuing to make progress.
    I'm SO GLAD the intubation turned out to be no biggie!

    Kelly, can't wait till next week! I mentioned on Facebook that I was
    meeting an online friend I've never met in person and someone sent me
    a message warning me that I was taking a terrible risk and you could
    turn out to be an ax murderer. LOL! cracked me up. see you soon.

    I am off to have the staples removed this morning. Things look good.
    Last night I had quite a bit of pain in the hand of my surgical side.
    The pain was situated down the exterior side of the arm and radiating
    from the large bone that appears as a bump at the wrist.

    Staple removal went fine. The doc was amazed at how well I am doing
    and said that for two weeks post-op I am doing very well. pain in the
    wrist is exactly that, and not related to the elbow. He did mention
    that his colleague does hands but said he knew hand surgery would be
    far down on my list at this point.

    How very wonderful. If you really buckle down and do what they ask you
    to, cheerfully and with honest effort, you can accomplish what you
    didn't think you could. I am proud of you.
