Happy Needle-Free Birthday!
Eventually they took Luke back about 1:40, and I headed off to wait in the surgical waiting room. I was reading a book by one of my favorite authors, Lisa Wingate, called The Story Keeper. It was so good, so the time really flew by. Also I finally was able to eat my peanut butter sandwich and orange, since I hadn't wanted to eat in front of Luke. I was so hungry by then! The doctor came out about 2:20 to say they were done and to hand me the specimen jar with the needle tip in it. It was a good 1/2 inch! (You can see it at the bottom of the jar in the picture.) The surgeon said everything went really well, no surprises, but that they were going to keep Luke in a knee immobilizer until his follow-up appointment 2 weeks later. Ummm . . . okay.
