Ryan is scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning. As always, we are on “hospital time”, and this is akin to the cable company. Meaning it might, or might not, happen in the morning.
Ryan will get a titanium rod inserted into the femur that will be anchored in place (forever) above and below the break. Although he will be sore, I’m told he will be out of his excruciating pain almost at once. I’m also told he will be able to resume “normal” (how I hate that word) activity when he gets home.
So, when will he get home? They want to keep him for two or three days. I believe they said he would be in traction, but I might be making that up. I do know he will spend the night in traction.
As with the past 26-3/4 months, Sue or I will be by his side.
Oh, and we’re still in the fuddruckin’ E.R…. 6 hours now!
