Just a quick note to let everyone know, Abe did better than the doctors expected from this surgery. He had it at 8am on Tuesday the 15th. It was planned for Monday the 14th. at 1pm, but the doctor that was to make the two incisions in each leg was running behind from a surgery, so rather then do it so late in the day and have an exhausted doctor, they changed the date and time. That meant he came home and had to be back there at 6am, which meant we were up at 4:30am to get ready to leave here in time to get there. This time his associate who also took care of Abe when he had his collapsed lung, made the incisions. Abe was very happy about that. I just talked to him this morning, he sounded more alert, the catheter had been removed so he could walk to the bathroom and they finally brought him some food. I will talk to him later, but just hearing him talk on the phone, he sounded 100% better than yesterday.
