So my poor mom is having surgery today. She tore her meniscus in her left knee a couple months ago and after the pain didn’t go away, she finally went to the doctor a couple weeks ago to have it checked out. A torn meniscus wasn’t what she was expecting to hear. I told her it was time to retire!
I was searching my computer for a picture of my mom and came across this one from last summer while she and my son were having an ice cream party at the pool. OH MY, this makes me long for summer. So she is having surgery today and should hopefully be home later this afternoon. My son is so excited to wait on her……I’m sure his excitement will end quickly when he realizes what that entails. ha. My dad and I will be on horse detail for the next few weeks and her instructions are taped all over the house and the barn ;).
I told her she could do spring crafts with me while she is recuperating and I’m not sure she was loving that idea. I don’t ever remember my mom having surgery. In fact, I don’t think she ever has. She has been very lucky, hopefully this will be uneventful and she will recover quickly. From what we have been told, a torn meniscus is fairly common and surgery usually takes care of it. Fingers crossed!
