Mrs. A (aka Mercy) came through the surgery just fine. She is now the proud owner of a 3 to 4 inch screw keeping several of the bones in her left foot just so.
She is still in a lot of pain, but pain meds on a regular schedule seem to keep it bearable. That, and the ice cream we feed her to keep her smiling. Mmmmm...Ice cream!
She goes back to the doctor this Friday for a look-see. We'll know more about the recovery process after that. Right now it looks like a couple of months without putting any weight on it and then a couple of months in a walking boot. The biggest question is: how long before it quits hurting every time she puts it down?
We've had several folks from church bring meals and that's been a great help.
I'll post more when I know more. Or anything, for that matter.
Thanks for your prayers and well-wishes.
