My surgery to fix the broken foot is scheduled for Monday. I was pre-admitted today. It will be an outpatient surgery, and barring complications I will be home Monday evening. My doctor explained some of the results of the MRI done of my left knee but I didn’t catch all of the anatomical terms to which he referred. I did hear: “torn ligament,” which he will not repair at this time. He said I could still walk and do other activities after rehab, and that if I were very athletic he would perform surgery for the tear. He also said there was a small tear in the “meniscus” which we should be alert to, but that he would also take a wait and see approach to as well.

Thinking good thoughts of healing & comfort on your behalf. xxoo
be well, clare. and make sure those doctors take care of you as though you were a famous athlete. poets need good knees, too. 🙂
I am so glad this surgery is scheduled. I hope the wait-and-see approach is the right one, that everything which can heal up on its own will, and that you won’t need any further surgeries after Monday’s.
You’ll be in my prayers, Clare.
