What a horrible time to have surgery! But just think, he'll start the New Year with it behind him and on the mend!

I hope your dad is recovering nicely. I feel bad for those who will be in the hospital over Christmas. Thenkfully there are wonderful doctors, nurses and staff willing to work over the holidays.

Erin,
Sending loving thoughts and quick healing to your father. My wife just had her meniscus repaired this summer...so I AM familiar with the process!

And...sending loving wishes to you and your wonderful family for a beautiful Christmas....

Glad to hear that the prognosis is good! And didn't Tiny Tim have crutches ... very good for acting out the Christmas Carol if you're so inclined.

I'm glad he's all done with that! Keep the pressure cuff going (if they sent him home with one like they did with Rick) and ice.

I hope your Dad is on the road to a speedy recovery. Something tell me he'll be receiving plenty of TLC along the way!

Well, that's a surprise! I hope it won't interfere with golf!! But twisting motions aren't so joint-friendly. Everyone says "quick recovery", but that's usually an oxymoron :{ The body likes to take its time to do everything just so, I guess! It's worth the wait, of course. Ice, elevate, and pamper! Stay safe and healthy!
