Good afternoon well it's only 11:20 AM for me. Rachael should be home soon. She has had half days all week, taking her exams. Today is her last day of school. She is officially on winter break. Not to worry, Mom will be putting her to work. We have a house to clean for someone's surgery and company.
Yesterday was Gretchen's pre-op appointment. Oy vey Friday is going to be a long day. They will be putting in a couple pins in Gretchen's heel and moving some tendons to help her create an arch. They will also be putting a few screws in her ankle that will be permanent. I didn't ask if she will beep going through metal detectors now. Gretchen's biggest concern was the stitches at least until she heard the pins in her heel will be removed a few weeks later right in the office. We have a bunch of post-op appointments already scheduled. After the first one, Gretchen will be going to have x-rays of her right ankle and foot before each of the other post-ops to make sure the surgery does what it is suppose to.
We are going to be quite hectic with scheduling for awhile. And SIX WEEKS after her surgery, she will start walking and going to therapy. Just got a phone call from medical supply, wheelchair is being delivered tomorrow. We should be all set with it Friday morning. Still wondering what we'll be doing about getting Gretchen to and from school once she starts up again. Since I don't drive, I can't transport her. A wheelchair is not going to work on the bus, but like I told everyone yesterday, we have a few weeks before it becomes an issue. Well I'll keep everyone in the loop Friday. Until then chores are calling.
