We made sure she had one of the top surgeons in the country as well.
His name is Dr. David Altchek. We met Dr. Altchek years ago when my older son had a shoulder injury, luckily surgery was not needed. Dr. Altchek operates on many famous athletes as well as a blogger or two. ( Mel from May/December)
So we were aware of him but had no idea that he was a knee specialist. We met with a few surgeons and he was the one that the three of us chose unanimously.
read about him HERE, he's famous :)
Anyway, it was a long day and my girl is now home with an ice machine and pages of instructions regarding pain management, rehab, bathing,... you name it.
She wouldn't let me take any pics in the hospital, but you may see a photo or two in the next few days as we will have plenty of togetherness.
Funny little story- As she came out of anesthesia she was a little out of it and kept remarking, ad nauseum, that the hospital seemed right out of her favorite show, Grey's Anatomy. And then she repeatedly told anyone who went by or spoke to her that they looked like they were right out of Grey's Anatomy.
It got worse.
Then she groggily kept repeating that her legs felt paralyzed like the kid from Friday Night Lights. Which then prompted her to tell anyone who would listen the storyline of that particular episode...
Maybe TV should be limited during her convalescence.
