Jeff's total knee replacement surgery was Friday, Aug. 28th. Ever since then, I have pretty much been staying at the VA hospital in a recliner in his room.
I did come back home 3 times for showers, laundry, clean clothes, etc though.
His surgery went just fine and his recovery is progressing much faster than I ever expected. This was his 6th surgery on his right knee and we hope it will be the last one for a long, long time.
He is back home now and will start 4 weeks of out-patient physical therapy tomorrow.
So many Veterans depend on the medical care received there. You hear lots of horror stories on the news about bad care but I did not see any deficiencies at the Oklahoma City VA hospital.
Jeff had many medical people caring for him. They all seemed to enjoy their jobs and took great effort to care for their patients.
busy, busy hospital entrance
lots of flags flying outside the entrance, and if you look close on the right edge, you can see the Oklahoma State Capital building with its dome top.
this is really pretty sight in real life - my photography does not do it justice.

For now, Jeff and I are both so happy he is recovering and that we are back home.
I'll be back to my normal blog topics - cooking, crafts, sewing, spending wisely soon.
