Kelly's Surgery

I have lots of blog posts to add to this site over the next couple of weeks...lots pictures and lots of events and I'm sure I'll have more once I have Christmas pictures but for now I just wanted to put up a little post to let everyone know that Kelly's surgery went great!
He is currently napping as he's been doing most of the day and is blissfully pain free from his percocet. The doctor showed me the scope pictures of the damage to his ankle when they first started and then how his ankle looked after he fixed it and boy what a difference! I can certainly see how Kelly could have had so much pain for so long. He is moving around okay when he's up...thank goodness for his little scoot along thing (like a walker but only for one leg???) as I can't imagine him having to maneuver around on crutches especially while he's so drugged up.
Anyway, I am relieved that all has gone so well so far and I think Kelly is enjoying being pampered and getting some much needed rest. He'll be in the cast for about a month and then have 2 weeks of physical therapy but things are already looking good for him. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!
