Keinbock's surgery updatge

My daughter had surgery today for Keinbock's disease.  They removed a portion of the bone in her arm and put a plate in with pins.  She did really well.  They did a nerve block and she was awake during the 3 hour surgery.  She wasn't even in the recovery room 30 minutes before she was released to go home.  (modern medicine or insurance restrictions?)  Anyway, she is resting this evening since the nerve block won't wear off for 24 hours.  I'm going over to take care of her tomorrow.

While Jamie was in the pre-op she was checking her phone messages and she had one from her Uncle Mike.  He had called to wish her a "Happy Surgery" followed by ummmmmmmmm "Is that right?"  It was very sweet.  The sentiment was just right.

I hope she is feeling well and back on her feet soon. And I hope you are taking care for yourself...

I've never heard of that problem and hope she is fine now.
Pretty sure it was insurance that sent her home early.

That was very sweet. Hope your daughter's recovery is a quick one.

I'll have to research that. I hope she recovers quickly.
