Day 9 In Boston - Out Of Surgery

India is out of surgery.

It was a marathon session that began at 6:00 am and ended 12 hours later. The doctor said that her femurs were so eroded that there was absolutely no cartilage left. He said it was pure bone on bone advanced arthritis and her pain had to have been excruciating. They didn't have to do a transfusion, her blood loss was minimal. 

India is in major traction and will be for weeks. They've placed large screws into her knees as the connection point for the traction; very intense looking.

Her pain is managed right now and she is resting.

Thank you all for your support, I'm grateful beyond words.
