2nd surgeon - the one that was on the "elbow team" said it went well, plate was placed by his elbow - all done!
He also mentioned that after they do the rest of the hip on Wed., that they will run MRI on the knee and it MAY not need surgery. That would be another miracle.
He mentioned that if we have "village" we might be able to bring Nathan home - we do have a "village", I would love to have him home instead of at a nursing home, - pray for wisdom - we have a while before we decide.
This morning after they had taken Nathan to surgery we were talking with the head nurse in his room and a bunch of people walked in and she said they were getting ready to start rounds. We asked if we should leave and she said "we're discussing Nathan if you'd like to stay". It totally looked like a scene from a tv show. They teach the UW med students here, so they had one of them talk about Nathan's meds, etc. and everyone was taking notes. They were 10 of them including the Chief of Surgeons!! Pretty surreal. Of course, Randy told me later it reminded him of a Seinfeld Episode - sure why not - he said the only thing missing was Kramer standing in a white jacket taking notes!!

Lynden man in serious condition after motorcycle crash
Nathan Korthuis was riding his 2008 Yamaha YZF R65 shortly after 2 p.m. Friday, April 23, when he failed to make a curve in the 300 block of East Wiser Lake Road, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The motorcycle drove off the road, crossed over a driveway and struck a curb. Korthuis was ejected, and the motorcycle came to rest in the eastbound lane.
The likely cause of the crash was excessive speed, the State Patrol said.
Korthuis was wearing a helmet, and neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected to have been a factor in the crash, according to the State Patrol.
