Not been to the repair shop yet. That happens in about 6-7 hours ... But thanks for asking!

Well, things turned out better than I hoped for. Since my veins appeared to be small, the surgeon decided to open the artery up and clean it out rather than do a bypass. One less cut to endure. But they did have to cut through some leg muscles and move them around to get to the artery. Just got up on a walker and me and the nurse (draggin my IV pole behind me) limped down the hall and back. Can you say PAINFUL? But at least I'm up and moving. Thanks for all of your kind thoughts and prayers. Those are probably why I got a 'clean out' instead of a bypass - I was hoping for the 'clean out'. And my foot feels a lot warmer now that I am getting better blood supply.

Still in the hospital as they are trying to get my blood thinned to a certain level. I knew I was thickheaded but I didn't know I was also so 'thickblooded'! :mrgreen: When they get that done and can get the drain out, I should be able to get out of here. I've also got another nice Frankenstein scar that runs from the inside of my left knee almost to the ankle.

Well, I got back to the Holler yesterday evening after they got my blood to the thickness of rubbing alcohol! If I hit my head, I've got to go immediately to an emergency room to make sure there's no internal bleeding. So I'm out of the saddle until they get that sort of stuff sorted. And I did bring home a souvenir from the experience. As I say, 'Some Men Have Tattoos, REAL MEN HAVE SCARS!' :mrgreen:

Good to hear everything went so well. Take care and recover quickly. There's riding to be done.

Well, I got the staples out today. The lower ones were okay but as they got closer to the knee it was a bit exciting.

The nurse said 'I must not be hurting, you're not hollering.'

My response - 'Only because I'm gritting my teeth ....' :shock:

Still a lot of swelling in the lower ankle and foot, but at least I can see my knee cap now! :mrgreen:
