A week, almost to the minute, since the good Doc sawed off my old knee joint and stuck in a new one.
I hear he had to replace the battery in that bone saw FIVE times before getting through my mule-ish leg bones.
A week later, and I am up and around. Have been since the day of surgery. Walker, crutches, and now.... slowly.... setting out on my own.
I took a six week leave of absence to get this done, learn to walk again, and build up strength to normal. That seems about right, at this point. That said.... I'm already thinking about being back in class.
