Post Surgery #2

We spoke with the doctor about 10 am and he felt that a second surgery was needed. Tony's knee wasn't bending well enough and he still had a great deal of pain. Went downstairs about 1:30 and then waited in surgery holding for about 3 hours. Slightly frutrating. I have a great pic of Tony with his blue surgerical cap. Nice, real nice.
The doctor said the surgery was successful (heard that before). He cleaned everything out, there were some blood clots and it looked like something was brewing and he is glad he went in and flushed it all out. The doctor manipulated his knee while in surgery and said he could only bend it about 70 degrees. He is giving Tony some different pain meds in the hopes of getting his pain under control. Once the pain is better Tony can work on bending and straightening his knee.
Probably not going home until Friday or Saturday.
