A successful surgery.

Surgery day!
Repairing a torn rotator cuff in D’s right shoulder.
The surgery was successful and not as intensive as originally planned, which means recovery will be faster and easier. šŸ™ŒšŸ¼ šŸ™ŒšŸ¼ šŸ™ŒšŸ¼
This is a BIG deal because trying to keep Dennis Lee Eastman DOWN and STILL is next to impossible.
In pre-op, the Doc considered my request for pain meds laced with sleeping narcotics for just a few seconds before laughing out loud and denying me. šŸ™„šŸ˜œšŸ˜‚
Hey. You have not because you ask not, right? <grin>

Now ...
-The patient is resting
-Dinner has been made
-Children are showered
-Movies are playing
... and pajamas and a cozy blanket are in my immediate future.
(In between managing hourly ice packs and pain meds of course!)
