My Operation # 01 — Six Word Saturday —
I had a total left knee joint replacement. It all started here in this office where my knee doctor had moved to since the last time he worked me over. That was either my fall in Ireland back in 2007 or an earlier double arthroscopic repair of my torn left knee meniscus.
He had moved to this office of the HC Bone and Joint Clinic of Houston. It was a newly opened Woodland branch from their established Houston Medical Center main office.
I am home now with Mrs. Jim, KP, Karen and Billy, and Adi, Katrin, and Amber.
Home health has been coming for rehab every day this week. An RN has also been coming out daily to change my dressing. That part will stop now as Holly, Dr. Price's Pa, removed my staples this Thursday. Dr. Eric Price is my orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine doctor.
There were some interesting situations, some good an some not so good, associated here with the surgery. These and my more recent health findings I will tell about soon here on my blog.
Next will probably be about my "BOUT WITH Diarrhea."
