Early tomorrow is another consultation with the possibility of outpatient surgery. This could be hereditary, and if I go ahead and address both knees, I will save $1000 in medical costs. No food after midnight tonight just in case surgery can be squeezed in tomorrow. Post surgery recovery is expected to be 60% within two weeks and the long term results are promising.
Regardless of all this, I am still planning to be at marathon weekend and give it my best effort.
Ok Mike, I know that wasn't funny. You didn't really think I was talking about me did you? Perish the thought. I dropped off Sophie (our third dog) for surgery this morning. If all goes well she should be recovered well enough to not be a big burden on my sister (who is house sitting) while we are gone. All the details above describe what Sophie is facing. She has been very uncomfortable and she is still under a year old. I am expecting a call later today on how everything went.
BTW I'm planning to be at Mousefest next year in 2009! Woo Hoo! Is it wrong to be excited about that already? I didn't think so. haha. Plans are to travel with my Mom and my sister who has not been back to the World since 1976. Boy is she in for a surprise.
