crys Gee, looks like that hurt!

Yeah it did... my x-rays of my right knee after surgery for a tibial plateau fracture (basically shattered the top of my shin bone):

side view:


front view:


broke it April 3rd... in a bar at 3:30am... while playing pool.. um, don't ask..

kinda funny though, when asked by the bartender if I wanted them to call 911 for an ambulance, I was like "No, I work for them!" I had them call anywways (only so long you can put up with that much pain). The medic kept saying "You know what comes next..." Yeah yeah, but don't cut my jeans off dammit, help me take them off in the normal way, alright? Yeah yeah, stick an IV in my arm.. no no, no morphine, demoral's good though.. ahhhhh........ (memory lapses at this point, duh...)

sorry, just bored...

Looks like a fun bone plate and screws, eeek

Now I'm really curious as to how this happened playing pool

Hope you're feeling better!

Yeah, um....OUCH!!!!

My econ Prof. has had 13 surgeries and 7 on high right knee. The last one (Jan.) wasn't successful. It's still busted and he's hobbling around on cruches and a huge leg brace (and this guy's HUGE; he was going to be in the Olympics for discus).

I was at Doc's, which is on Cobb Pkwy just north of I-285 and just west of I-75

um, if you're trying to be encouraging, LivLuv... er... }:)~

Now sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip....

No no no, this is a U2 board, hmmm...

Grace
I'll take the blame
Though I am ashamed
And now in pain
It sure ain't my name
Grace
It's a name for a girl
It's also what I lack
I'm so absurd

And when I clomp down the street
And try to pick up things
Grace is absent in everything

Grace
I have to walk
Up on a ramp so don't gawk
I gotta sit to talk
I hobble around on crutches, crutches
I hobble around on crutches

I can't go to work
Or try to pick up things
Grace is absent in everything

Grace
I fooled around with a cue stick
Couldn't play or do any tricks
But I twirled and skipped and then I got kicked
And then I fell, in painful condition
I felt the hurt
I felt the friction
It left no mark
But it sure did sting
Lack of grace takes dignity
Out of playful things
Grace is absent in everything
Grace is absent in broken things

okay, so that wasn't so great, but what do you expect for five minutes' work? heck, I'll just tell y'all the whole damn story...

no wait, that would take too long.. here's the short story...

see, there were these eight guys with baseball bats and... no no, just kidding... }:)~

short story: I got kicked in the side of my leg by the heel of a cowboy boot... it wasn't a barfight 'cause I was taken completely by surprise and couldn't get up off the floor...
