My femoral nail procedure went well. My surgeon said it took a bit longer than planned as he found my bones very hard, which slowed the drilling. He also elected to put a longer shank down the femur, so now I am the proud owner/wearer of a 15.75 inch rod with a 4 inch interlocking nail.
Linda got us all moved in and set up for the evening. She is such a sweetie!
Pain level is about a 5 now and slowly fading as the oxycontin kicks in. Looks like I will be here for a couple days to make sure that I can get up and around with no other medical lapses.
Thank you all for the wonderful outpouring of love and prayers. They mean so very much to us and are such a great encouragement. Love to all!
