    Woke up feeling pretty good this morning considering the stiffness in my knee due to surgery last Thursday. Still havent taken any pain meds and I'm only taking meloxicam for inflammation so not bad considering...
    But today, I will get to watch the KC Chiefs, my home team play in the AFC Championship game with their best chance in 50 years, longer than my lifetime, to get to the Super Bowl. So I'm looking forward to that.
    But the biggest yeah for me today was that I got to take the mummy leg off this morning. Three days of having my entire leg from the hip to the top of the toes wrapped up in an ace wrap over a cotton wrap to cover two 1 inch incisions on my knee finally came to an end.

    There is some swelling but in a couple weeks I won't be able to tell.

    The scar tissue that was causing me issues was attached to thaback of my knee cap and getting caught between two of the components of the artificial knee causing extreme pain.

    Once cleared out I can move and walk with absolutely no pain again.

    I'm finally hopeful that this is the last surgery for a couple decades.

    One more thing that makes this a great Sunday, well two really buy only one is appropriate for here, is that I finally got to take a shower again. It's amazing how much better one feels after three days of no showers.

    I've got a zipper but it's on my chest. This June will be 10 years since the surgery.

    This June will be 9 years since the first zipper was put in my leg. It's the one that curves down the side and looks like a lightning bolt.

    I've had 5 different surgical teams work on this knee. Of them I would recommend 3. The two that I would not recommend are led by doctors that will not listen and think their poop doesn't stink...ever.
    I don't mind confidence but when that becomes arrogant prickishness I won't have anything to do with him/her again.

    Exactly!
    Listen to me...
    I know it's going to hurt...
    But after this many injuries and repairs I have a pretty good idea of what both right and not right feels like.

    Just about. Let this bruising dissipate and I'll meet up with you for the next 5k. This knee feels so good I could do a dance right now.

    Yay! So glad it's healing.

    I myself don't follow (American) football, but my whole Californian family is of course supporting the 49ers...;)

    Thank you.
    Kansas City it completely electrified right now. This is the furthest our football team has been in longer than my life time. It looks to be a really good game no matter the outcome (GO CHIEFS! ) As both teams are formidable.
