Long before the sun came up, I had Robert in the care and drove him to Mercy Hospital in Lorain on Monday, March 24, 2014, so Dr. James Andrasko could perform surgery on Robert's surgery. We were there before 6:30 as requested only to be told it was a late surgery day and that Robert would not have surgery before 8:30. And sure enough, right on the button of 8:30 was Robert was taken to surgery and at 9:10, I was meeting with the doctor and told that everything went well. Phew!
We had to wait til 12:30pm before I could bring him home. He has about a 2-week recovery time. The first few days he really just laid around the house. Now almost a week later, he's moving quite a bit better. I am glad he didn't insist on returning to work. The mill is filthy and he needs to stay home as long as possible. He will get the doc's permission to return to work on Monday, April 7 and probably that means he will return to work on the 8th...at least that's what I'm hoping for.
