Well, it’s been a week since the supposedly “simple” arthroscopic procedure on my right knee & I must say, I’m as confused as I’ve ever been. The pain level has slowly inched back up, & my knee (well, actually my leg, I guess) is black ‘n blue. The stitches come out this coming Monday, & we’re supposed to look at pictures & discuss details of the surgery. Yay…about time me-thinks. Although maybe the docs DID try to speak with me that Friday; I apparently was simply too groggy to notice.

Plus I want/need/have to get back to work. Need the funds, of course, & there are a myriad of things I’d like to accomplish at my own station before old man winter arrives in the Carolinas.
