Dave's surgery went really well, they got about 120 degrees of bend to his knee. Pre-surgery he was only getting about 20 degrees. He will be on Ward 57 until Monday, for pain control and so he can be in the CPM machine, which will keep his leg bending all the time.
We are really looking forward to Gene coming to visit us next week. Gene is the guy in the picture up there with Dave. He was the first person to come to Dave after the landmine went off. Gene saved Dave's life by running in without regard for his own safety (there could have been more landmines in the area) and putting the tourniquets on Dave's legs.
We also got a visit yesterday from Tim and Ryan, Barksdale EOD guys who were in Afghanistan with Dave!
