Another slice & dice this Friday

I had my pre-op yesterday and will have another surgery on my $&#@*& up left knee on Friday at 8:00 AM. Clean out a bunch of scar tissue, check the new parts they put in last time and do some work on a tendon on the backside of the knee.

Hopefully, this one will get me where at can at least get around a bit without all the pain and swelling.

Dawn says that looks really good and the docs did a good job, also you might want to shave the other to match.

Hanging in there I hope? Hope they knew where to put that big chunk of scar tissue, once removed. In a jar for your book shelf! Not all trophies are shiney or have big antlers ...

Unfortunately, I have this damned thing called life that I have to contend with. Those who know me well will understand the things that Laurie and I have to deal with on a daily bases are sometimes very demanding. I would love to be able to get away for a few days, but at this time it's better I'm close to home.

No worries Otis, thanks for asking!

The swelling has finally gone down quite a bit, but still, have significant pain on the back of the knee where the hamstring tendons attach. My Physical therapist is focusing on the tendons with ultrasound and massage.

Heal well my friend. I only had to deal with a tiny fraction compared to your knee. It's amazing what you've dealt with and still had a smiling happy face with all of us at the shoots.
