Surgery- A character building lesson.

On Tuesday, April 19, Nene (Mary Ann, Grandma) had a total knee replacement on her right knee. We have prayed for this day, and sent many prayers the day of her surgery and are still praying for a great recovery. The surgery went beautiful and she is doing well with recovery. Still in a lot of pain almost a week after surgery, but is walking around with a walker and is having physical therapy.

This event has served as a great learning tool for Natalie and Adam. We have visited her everyday since her surgery. We went to the hospital three days in a row and since she is now home we have been there the past few days as well. The kids have learned that we are to take care of people when they need it. They have been a great help at helping their Nene get “better”. They have assisted in grocery shopping, making sure she is comfortable and also helping in cleaning up after themselves at Nene’s house so she won’t fall on the toys.


Just at out visit today, Easter Sunday, we all enjoyed seeing Mary Ann walk with a walker. We are glad to see she is doing well and are excited for her to be able to walk further and get around better without being in pain all of the time.

blessings, jackie
