Oct. 6th, 2006

I just set up a surgery date for my knee, October 24 (a little over three weeks away). I'm leaning heavily towards using an allograft (cadaver tissue) rather than using a tendon from my own knee. So I'll have a zombie knee, right? And just in time for Halloween. My brother wanted to know if they tossed in a free exorcism for when the knee starts trying to take over the rest of me (and through me, the world), but I told him that wasn't included.

On a more serious note, how mobile I will be and how quickly is anybody's guess. It depends on how much my knee swells up and how much it hurts. Most people are on crutches for a week to ten days, and I may not be doing much besides elevating it, icing it, and doing physical therapy for the first few days. But people can come visit and entertain me (hint, hint).
