Day 10 Post Op

Today has been another restless day for Rudi. He's really getting bored with his confinement. Brian and I went out to dinner last night so atleast we got rid of some of our weekend cabin fever.

We still feel like Rudi is progressing well but we will have some questions for the doctor come this Friday when he removes the staples. First of all, we heard some clicking coming from his surgical leg again. This was the same clicking sound that we heard prior to surgery. I don't believe we should be hearing anything if the meniscus was repaired. I'm hoping this is not a bad sign. Secondly, Rudi is still bearing weight on his leg but not as much as I hoped. He's still toe touching but maybe I should just keep in mind that this leg was more damaged than the other. It's just that the lack of confidence in bearing weight along with the audible clicking is making me nervous that something might be wrong. I'm trying not to jump the gun but it just seems like last time went more smoothly than this.

I hate to even think that Rudi may need more surgery if something is not healing right internally. I guess we will find out by the end of the week.
