I'm Home Again

Had my right knee replaced on Thursday, it went pretty well. The hospital staff were great and I was introduced to some amazing drugs. It was a partial replacement so I'm hoping that maybe in four weeks or less I'll be able to drive again. Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers. It was not as bad as I thought it would be. The procedure started around noon on Thursday, took a little less than an hour and I was out of the hospital by Saturday afternoon.

What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday was my daughter's wedding day and it was a gorgeous day, simply beautiful. Yesterday it was cold, sleet, snow, high winds and freezing rain.

Right now my wife is talking to her cousin on the telephone; she's describing my last bowel movement. I passed a healthy nine pound bouncing baby brick.

It's good to be home.

You know, I've always heard that bowel movements are only fit subjects for polite conversation when the subject is either very young or very old. Just sayin'...!

Congrats on making it through the surgery OK. Always a relief.

What teh wife can get away with. Jealous a bit, even so. That sort of familiarity can't be bought. Although... I am not sure it should be even if it could be? :p

Glad to hear it was easier than considered and you are back. As for the weather? It's perfect for sacking out and numbing down. I hate recovery when it is so bright and shiny outside! Grab a murder book and, with all, feel like you are really on to something.

Glad to hear all went well. Looking forward to lots of posts while you just " lounge around"

Congratulations on your Baby Brick. Now if only the rest of you looks so good, huh.

Well, Sig, you know what they say: 'sometimes you're the mortar, sometimes you're the brick.'

How long will it be until your able to slam dunk a basketball again?

Little TMI there Sig !

Glad the knee is going well!

I hear it heals 3 times faster with regular sex.

The condition I was in is common to people who undergo surgery and use proscribed narcotics for pain management. I thought the doctor sewed me up, just for giggles.

I really think I deserve a shower... a brick shower.
