Wish me luck...

It has been confirmed that an orthopedic surgeon will be slicing my epidermis open sometime around 11am this Thursday. It will start out arthroscopicly, and most likely end with a nice big scar sized to the dimensions of the object he is removing from my leg. I googled my doctor in hopes of finding rave reviews, but found nothing out of the ordinary, except that he donated $1000 to the McCain campaign. It's up to you whether that's a deal breaker or not. Here's hoping that the mystery object he'll be removing from my synovium is a roll of $20s or the long lost twin I absorbed while in utero, complete with hair and teeth.

Thank you to all those that have brought me meals, have told me they will bring me meals, have visited me, have taken the newly minted sunbeam off my hands, have given me movies to watch, have shipped me books from out of state, etc. It's very hard for me to accept help, and even harder to ask for it.

Does anybody have a better explanation I can give to those who ask what triggered my knee difficulties? It currently stands at "I was sitting on the ground at my friends house while watching a pirated version of New Moon, and I stood up". I'd prefer a version that makes me sound heroic rather than moronic.

I'm betting they find packets of salt. You've been storing them like a demented chipmunk haven't you?

First of all, I am DYING laughing at your passive aggressive anonymous compliment.

Second, I'm sending prayers your way for a speedy and effective surgery. And also, will you send me the name of your surgeon STAT? My dad and sis are in a bizness where they know lots of the goods on surgeons, I want to run his name by them before I let him "slice" into your knee.

Third, my friend used to tell people she broke her foot in a snowboarding or water skiing accident (she switched when the seasons changed) when really she broke it by slamming her car door while her foot was still in it. How lame is that story to tell over and over? The poor girl was on crutches FOREVER, it just wouldn't heal with tons of PT even.

Much love, amiga.

Your blog has cheered me up since I'm at work and really trying to do something and nothing is happening! Bummer for your knee. Wish the best! Oh Clint has a twin in our new ward. He is also a couns in the Bishop Brick. I feel at home! LOL
