We saw Dr. Nichols (surgeon) this evening and since she is so sedated from the meds, he wants to go ahead and do the surgery on her knee tomorrow afternoon. The surgery will be minimally invasive and only require a local anesthesia (sp). She won't even have bandages or a brace. He said it would only leave a few "nick holes" after he puts 4 screws in the bone. More power to him!
This is, of course, dependant upon agreement from the other docs on the case. I suppose we will hear for sure sometime in the morning.
Pray that this surgery will somehow aid in Christy's recovery from this illness.
