Grandson home again from hospital today
Hooray, Rob came home from hospital and the medical staff were delighted with the operation. The leg is now encased in a removal brace and he is to keep weight off it for a few days. There had been discussion about a bone graft but the surgeon told my son that it looked as if the bones could mend themselves considering that Rob is only 15 and the bones are still growing. So he has three titanium screws in the knee, a beautiful orange leg and crutches.
We are all thankful that the spectre of the operation, and what they might find, is behind us. The next hurdle is meeting with the surgeon next Friday.
My son and his family live some 50 kms north of here and so Lotte, Andy and I got into the car for the trip.
I don’t know if Andy had ever been in the country before but he was very adventurous and interested in everything.
Andy was introduced to Daisy Dog and was shown by Daisy how to really help when her owner is working.
Lotte decided it was all too much excitement and so she made herself comfortable on the couch at the side of Rob’s bed.
And Rob was delighted to see us (but he wouldn’t let me show his face or his leg encased in the brace)
And so another busy, fun filled day comes to an end. Andy has met another dog, a very large old cat, espied the sheep and watched the men repairing the road. So after all that, he has settled down with Lotte to dream his own special dreams.
