Update on Wilson

 Here's a little update on Wilson's meniscus surgery.
The procedure lasted 30 minutes and the surgeon took 
pictures as he did the surgery to show us afterwards.
The good news is everything went as planned and there 
were no surprised once he got in there.
Elevated and iced every 20 minutes for the first 24 hours.
From this pic you can't tell how orange Wilson's leg is.
I think it's from the anti-bacterial liquid they used pre-surgery
to clean the leg.   
 The shade of orange reminded me of the Oompa Loompa's
from the Wizard of Oz.  It's hard to believe that Wilson didn't know
what a Oompa Loompa was so I had to find pictures to show him.
We had a good laugh.

 On Saturday we can remove the bandage and then he can
wash the Oompa Loompa color off his leg.  He's still taking
pain meds and using his cane but hasn't attempted the steps yet.
 I planted these in early spring ... Freesia 
Our neighbors Nancy & Larry left the yellow rose
plant as a get well for Wilson.  Hopefully, he'll be 
walking better by next week.  Stitches come
out next Thursday.
