We drove him over to the surgery center and he was admitted in a few minutes. They got him dressed and ready for surgery and let us visit our little trooper before he went in for surgery. We shortly were told to leave and kissed Jerrid on the forehead and made our way out of there, praying and wishing that everything goes well.
The surgery went great! Within an hour and a half the nurse called my cell phone and let us know that Jerrid was doing great and he was in recovery. The surgeon was amazing! He was very quick and was extremely happy about the outcome of the surgery. He told my mother and I what he had done to fix his knee and let us know that he should be recovering better and quicker than previously expected.
Cute socks! :)

I was so happy! I have been through surgery before myself, but I was not as nervous as I was when Jerrid was going through it. I know what I can handle, but knowing someone you love is going through surgery is so tough to cope with, especially while waiting.
While we were waiting, my mother and I stopped by Wal-Mart to pick up some more things for the baby...we ended up buying everything in the baby section. It's really easy to get carried away in there!
Anywhoo, I want to thank all of you for your extremely kind wishes for Jerrid to have a successful surgery and recovery! Your prayers have helped both of us deal with this situation.
