A new knee =)

Just wanted to let you all know that my Dad officially has a new knee and is doing well. His surgery was later than planned(instead of 2, they started at 6:15pm) but it went really well. Poor guy has had a long day. When I left the hospital about 11:30pm, he was still pretty groggy and having some pain but that is to be expected. His anesthesia was wearing off so he was pretty itchy. He even said "I think there are fleas in this bed." =) He was resting off and on though. Therapy will come in the morning to get him moving and that is when the real work begins. But he is super motivated so I know he will do great!! Thank you soooo much for your prayers.  It really does mean so much!!
