Norman Update: Part Deux
Norman got mad when I held Wellstone, the parrot
Norman's orthopedic surgeon called this morning with their recommendation. As predicted, they believe he has a torn ACL and meniscus.
They recommend surgery as soon as possible to avoid further tearing and arthritis.
The recovery time for this surgery is 8 weeks. During that time, I will have to keep Norman's activity level to a minimum. (Easier said than done.)
Since we are in the middle of a huge basement renovation, I have decided to schedule the surgery when it is completed, or at least mostly completed.
I'm looking at early June.
Thanks for all of your well wishes. Norman & I appreciate the support!
