breaking news, not breaking leg

Posted by Mary |

My radio silence has been deliberate. It's not a "no news is good news" sort of situation. My knee just didn't heal well after the surgery in July. I've tried, but the range of motion is not coming back through physical therapy.

Tomorrow morning I go back into the hospital for another procedure. This one is less involved than the actual knee surgery. More painkillers this time, from what I understand. That should make for interesting post-operation conversations. I recall waking up in my hospital room in July with the overwhelming urge to discuss diversifying my portfolio to include more foreign investments. Fortunately MNB was only a phone call away and more than willing to talk about fiscal matters.

I'm all out of sick time at this point, so I am using vacation time to take one of the two weeks I need off from work. I'll just have to be back at work the second week.

In semi-related news, winter is setting in. The snow has arrived and it looks like it will be here to stay. When I get out of the operating room, I will have another OnQ ball in my knee. Non-sequitur? No. I do not own any pants that will fit over all the wrappings and the OnQ and will keep me warm in the wintry weather, so I am wearing my fleece pajama pants to the hospital. Tres WalMart chic.

Good luck with this latest trial, and thanks for giving Jacob a warm welcome last week. We want to come up again together soon - when our exile in CA is over!
