🙂 Not to bore you all with another good weekend story, but that’s what happened. Saturday was swords in the afternoon, mounds of sushi in the evening, and Rock Band for the night.
Sunday wasn’t much as far as adventures, just got some new pants and shirts and a couple of ties.
Today, my dad went into the hospital for knee replacement surgery (finally!). I’m glad he finally did it, his knee is getting more and more painful to him, and it’s limited his mobility tons (there was basically no cartilage left in it). He can’t afford that health-wise, or practical-wise. As in, he needs to keep moving and keep physical for his health’s sake, and for his ability to hunt, go to gun shows, and take care of his mom.
I called him this evening, and although he was a bit blurry and slurry, he related some of how he was doing and such. I talked to his wife, who is staying the night there with him, and keeping an eye on him (thanks, Susan!). We still don’t know if the hospital is going to send him straight home after his stay (3 or 4 days), or directly to a rehab center. Susan is hoping the rehab center, so he can get training and help right away, and won’t have to walk around their house, which is NOT disability-friendly. Plus, she can get back to work and know that he’s getting what he needs, instead of not working and using up precious vacation.
