Joel's surgery went really well! It only took about an hour and we were out of there by 9:45.
The doctor said he was lucky because the rest of his cartilage looked really good. They basically took cartilage from one part of his knee and "filled in" the gap where he was missing some. He isn't in pain, but he's also on lots of meds. He is passed out in the guest room.
I am about to sleep too. We woke up at 5:15 so I'm exhausted!
