duke-injured

Knees and Flowers

Had my followup appointment with my knee doctor today. He had good news and bad news. The outside part of the joint? Very good. The middle part of the joint? Good. The ACL looks okay. The meniscus is not all that bad.

But the inside of my knee, on the femur, has a LOT of bare bone exposed. He showed me three or four photos of it. "Bare bone," he exclaimed. "That's bare bone, and that's bare bone!" (He gets a little excitable.)

On the plus side, I got my stitches out -- YAY! Plus, when I got home I found a big box of flowers sitting on my porch!! They were sent from my ex-employer, "Wishing you a speedy recovery, -The Xede Family" How wonderful and kind, especially given my resignation! It made me feel guilty and warm and fuzzy at the same time. They smell lovely. I sent them a very nice thank-you email.
