Ben's knee

Ben had to have some minor knee surgery this month. He hurt his knee playing basket ball a couple months ago and he just kept having some pain and his knee would lock up. So we decided we better just have it operated on so he didn't have any future problems. Dr. Sorenson did the surgery, he is a great surgeon! He is also in my parents ward and I used to baby sit his kids. haha. Ben had to stay off his leg for 3 days which was hard for a guy like him who goes to the gym twice a day. One day I came home and caught him sitting in chair lifting weights...crazy guy; hes addicted!
He is doing good now hobbles around a little but it's getting better every day! Since he has been on pain medication he can't drive so he has been driving with me to work, it has been kind of nice to have him ride with me; he comes with me to drop Ari off and pick her up from day care.



 Here is Ben getting prepped for surgery.


BEWARE THE NEXT FEW PHOTOGRAPHS MAY BE DISTURBING









These are the pictures from the scope inside his knee. 
This first picture is the piece of cartilage that was stuck in there.




That is the piece of cartilage they took out; that is the thing that kept bothering him.
We have this sitting in a jar in our fridge......Just kidding that would be gross.

Here is Ben all laid up... 





 This is the day he finally got to take his bandages off and take a shower! There is a yes written on there so the doctor wouldn't forget which knee to operate on... haha :-)

I love that they write yes, but they have to because people don't pay attention. I worked on surgical at mckay for a few years and I would giggle everytime I saw yes and no on a patient. A nurse informed that they have to do that because it has been known that people have gotten surgery on the wrong knee or extremity. Hopefully Ben is doing better and little Ari is feeling well. That way you won't feel stretched so thin. You are a good mom and wife.
