I had my ACL tendon reconstructed and a few other things down to me left knee. I found out a few things about myself.
#1 - I am very impatient. I want to do things when I want to do them. I think of
something, like I want to get this or that and I want to be able to have it!
It even bugs me if I want to clean something up and can't! I do not like being laid up!!
#2 - I like having two legs that work! I like it a lot!
#3 - I like having my family have to wait on me! HeeHee! Sometimes they forget about me though! Just kidding - thanks guys!
#4 - The big earthquake in Haiti made me realize just how lucky we have it. I
was lying in my bed watching CNN showing all those poor people. They all just
had to stay in the streets. Many of them were horribly injured. They had no
doctors, no pain medication, no sanitation and no one to take care of them.
There I was - in my nice soft bed, hurting a little but with an ice machine,
pain medication and people who could help me. I had surgery in a nice,
sanitary hospital with little chance of infection. I have food and water
and a nice flushing toilet! I guess all that helps keep things in perspective.

Anyway, I am feeling better, but I am still a total gimp. I have to wear a brace and keep it locked straight if I walk. I still use crutches a little and I am not in much pain. I start physical therapy on Monday!

Yes we are blessed when we put it all in perspective, but it isn't really easy to do that very often. I am glad you are not in as much pain anymore. Continue to heal, and I will call you this week.

I hope you heal fast. It's a small world...I was looking at my aunt Dani McDermott's facebook and saw that you commented on it. I talked to her today and she said to tell you hello.
