Knee Surgery

Doctor Appointment Today
I had total knee replace surgery on my left hind leg on November 30, 2010. So it has been 7 weeks yesterday since the good Dr. Strang operated on my knee. Today is my first appointment with him since the surgery.

However, I have had extensive therapy at home and at the Wellmont Outpatient center here in Kingsport. I am encouraged by my progress and hope the doctor will feel the same. I’m walking without a cane, and able to ride the exercise bike.

I am not sure exactly what will happened today, but I expect some x-rays and measurements on my range of motion in my knee.

Now I need to get my right need done. I wonder if the doctor will have any recommendations about when I should do my other knee. Right now I’m planning to wait until October or November of this year.

Do you need to be better at typing knots? If so, here’s a good website that shows the most popular and useful knots and illustrates how to tie them. Just click on the picture below:

Tip for household repairs:
If it moves and it should not move,
use Duct Tape.
If it does not move, and it should move,
use WD-40.

Joke of the Day

A couple is dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They phone for a cab, turn on a night light, cover their pet parakeet and put the cat out in the back yard.

The taxi arrives, and they open the front door to leave. Suddenly the cat they put out scoots back into the house. They don't want the cat shut in there because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes back in. The cat runs upstairs, with the man in hot pursuit.

The wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later the husband gets into the cab.

"Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid hag was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!

The cab driver hit a parked car.
