    The old key hole surgery thing has taken on a whole new meaning.

    Actually, the problem very well could have been that. I was hit by a car while working as the on-site mechanic at a sobriety checkpoint 8 years ago. Though we really aren't sure he was drunk at the time because he ran and got away. He was arrested two weeks later but never confessed to drinking that night.
    He was well known by every police officer that was working that night because he had been arrested by almost every one of them at least once...some more than once.

    This is crazy. I have dealt with this with every step I've taken on my right leg for the last 2 1/2 years since this knee was put in.

    I’m sorry to hear that and hope that you will forgive my flippant response! The size of your scars tell a story of great discomfort and I can only feel sorry to learn that you have suffered as a result of a known police suspect.

    I’d like to offer you and your family some practical support, but living in Ireland I’m not sure that I can.

    Look after your self

    There's nothing to forgive my brother. Nothing at all. I actually needed the little laugh that you gave me. You are a good cat.

    Made it through the surgery and now waiting for a room in Post-Op. They said my knee was really interesting with all of the damage and obvious issues he saw while he in there.

    Glad you made it through. It builds your confidence when someone looks at you or something you bring in for repair and says "interesting," don't it?:D

    Man! I am sorry I missed this one. I'm glad you made it through. :)

    I hope this is the last bit of trouble with the knee.

    I hope this individual has changed his life, knowing how much damage he caused. It truly is strictly by the Grace of God that I didn't do something similar...all the times I got drunk and still drove.

    When they came in to have me stand up I told them it was time for a lap around the unit floor. So we went for a walk on my request.

    Not there... or there.
    So any parts come out for your scrap book guitar?

    Glad the operation is over. How long before you know it is better than before?

    They will need to test the parts for any infections then sterilize them but yes, I should be getting parts for Olic.

    I can say right now that it is already more stable than when I walked into the hospital this morning. As the swelling goes down I will start seeing how much of a change there really is.

    I just got back from my second lap around the floor. Wrapped up like a mummy too.
