Game Day

Just a short update on today's surgery.

Happy to say it went well. It turns out the tendon didn't actually sever; it just came disconnected from the knee bone. We'll find out in the morning, but it looks like my wife will be able to come home from the hospital on Friday. Still to be determined is what approach we'll be taking in the weeks ahead - physical therapy, rehab, etc. - and for how long.

If every you need joint surgery of any kind, we can give a strong recommendation to the high-level professionals of The Hospital for Special Surgeries in NYC. Every detail is checked and rechecked to make sure everything is done right. And rather than having to spend an hour searching the hospital for someone, anyone, when you need something, we had an on-going parade of hospital staff checking on what we needed before we needed it. The surgical waiting area is a large atrium with a great view of the East River. And most importantly, they provide coffee at no cost.

Time for some sleep.

So, my husband says to me "Actually, honey....I think you have a bone spur. Maybe we can get a twofer with that and the knee. You're going to be incapacitated anyway...." Um, please....not so much sympathy. Gahh...

I've just gone whizzing back in time to see how you and Missus arrived at this sorry pass. You don't always pop up on my dashbosrd you see. How I feel for the poor woman: this must have been terrifying for her. I hope she's ok soon but don't underestimate the knock her confidence has taken.

Good job you got the cats sorted out bfore! Just a thought.

love, Angie, xx

Hoping you recover from Oprah's announcement. Hoping you ate some good turkey and your wife is doing better.
