So, I'm still on crutches, and will be until next week sometime (bleah). But I'm off the narcotic painkillers, and have been for a while, and I got most of my bouncy-bouncy back yesterday. I had been missing it, so that's a fine thing, though it means that I'm feeling more antsy and fidgety than when I was so worn out that all I wanted to do was lie around and watch tv.

I really dig the fact that my doctor shows me my xrays and mris and pictures from surgery, and outlines various things so that they make sense. They took some xrays today to make sure that the bone tunnels look good, so I got to see the vague outlines of where the tunnels and screws (made of calcium, so not easy to see on an xray) are. Neat! Science geeks unite.

The screws are made of *calcium*? That's just plain cool.

That was me. Not sure what logged me out.

Isn't it cool? That way, they don't just get reabsorbed, they more or less just get subsumed in to the bone, and don't leave a hole. And thankfully, I don't have metal in my knee to set of metal detectors.

Wow. If you have to have foreign objects in you, at least they can be familiar and understandable and connect well with the native ones! It's almost as good as talking nanotechnology... ;-)

Feel better!

Yay! I was just thinking about you & wondering how the recuperation is progressing. :-)

We should make a VMars date sometime soon. We've got 4 tasty eps for y'all to see...
