For all of you who wondered how Jeff's surgery went, I just wanted to let you know it went very smoothly. The doc talked to me when Jeff was in recovery and showed me some pictures that were taken of the inside of the knee. Jeff's ACL was completely gone. They had to graft in a new one. Crazy. I couldn't believe he had been walking around for a month without one. His meniscus was torn and they cut off about 40% of it. I asked the doc if Jeff would be fine with only 60%. He said yes but that Jeff will probably have arthritis in 10-15 years. The meniscus is sort of a shock absorber for the knee. Who needs one, right?
