The Left Knee
I found out yesterday I'm going to have knee surgery on Feb. 21st, 2013. Less than 2 weeks from now.
Well, crap. I guess that means I'm not doing the Cleveland Half-Marathon in May AGAIN. Bleech.
I am not happy but I'll walk and do stuff up to the day.
Oh, and for an uplifting note of cheeriness, the bus driver on my way back from the doctor's says:
"I don't mean to be a downer but after I had my ACL surgery done, I gained 100 pounds and I've only lost 30 of it. In 20 years....."
Gee, thanks! Just what I didn't need to (insert swear words) hear. I gained a lot of weight after the first one in 2002 and the only thing that saved my life was having the esophagus rebuild in 2006.
