Road Trip Day

Off to San Diego this morning. I will be seeing the bone doctor. He is going to be finishing up his diagnostic process on my left knee (actually it's my whole left side from the hip on down). We will then figure out our options and course of action. After minimal activities over the weekend and a sudden weather change Monday morning I was thrown into a state of near immobility.

Not something I care to live with or in. A broken body can feel like a cage for the soul. Time to get shit fixed.

vietnam vet buddy had both knees replaced recently by the VA and he now walks without pain and without braces. As a Marine, in Vietnam they humped those big ass packs everywhere. Good luck with the surgery.

My arthritic knees and I feel your pain--best of luck in determining the best surgical course of action. Speaking for myself, I have been thrilled to find out that there have been tremendous recent gains in women's knee replacements--as opposed to, you know, the one-size-fits-all/women-are-just-like-shorter-men approach. Looking forward to hearing your report.

MB,

Wishing you all the best in getting a proper diagnosis and course of action. I do not know why, but the following untypically profane (for me) poem came to mind, so I will share a snippet of Etheridge Knight's "Feeling Fucked Up" (with one small emendation):

"fuck mary fuck god jesus and all the disciples fuck fanon nixon and malcom fuck the revolution fuck freedom fuck the whole muthafucking thing all i want now is my [body] back so my soul can sing"
