Ryan is still on for surgery to have a metal rod driven into his right femur to repair a complete break of the bone. It’s scheduled for eight o’clock this morning. Overnight, he didn’t appear in immense pain, but was certainly hurting. He was kept on a steady flow of pain medications. Although necessary, this was made worse because of the numerous blood draws and X-rays throughout the night.
So, before too much longer things will start getting busy as they prepare him for surgery and we have our requested final consultation with the surgical team. I’m not clear on how long the operation will take, but will post updates here on the website as I know them.
We’ll be so relieved when this is all finally done and we get back home. I feel bad for Ryan that he hurts and is certainly hungry. He hasn’t had any food in well over twenty-four hours and he probably won’t be getting any for a while after the surgery. I admire him so much.
