Tonight I am in a hotel in Houston medical center. Papaw is having knee replacement surgery tomorrow at Methodist Hospital. Boo was very good at dinner, but now we are all settled in our room, and he is way too wound up to go to sleep. He is watching cartoons. Thank goodness I thought enough to get a room with a separate bedroom and living area. Mom and Papaw are trying to go to sleep. Papaw has been in a lot of pain with his knee. I know surgery will cause more pain, but we hope it recovers well and that he can have a more active happy life again. He has been miserable. We will be with him all day tomorrow and then most of the day Tuesday and then going home that afternoon. I hope Boo can somewhat behave tomorrow at the hospital. If not, we can walk back to the hotel.
