Mother goes to hospital

All preped and ready for surgery

Surgery is complete. Doctor says all went well but Ma says, "I hope so, I'm sore."  Now begans the exercises to keep the knee from getting stiff.  The surgery was to be at 11:30 am but she did not get into surgery til about 1:30 or 2:00.  Then about an hour in recovery before getting to her room at about 5:00.   That is room 522W at St. Lukes hospital in Duluth.  She may get out on Friday or Saturday depending on how well she can move the knee.  Then begins the therapy in Brainerd. (She has her cell phone with her.)
