(Sorry for the double notification of the post from yesterday.. tried to edit something and it all went haywire from there!)
The boys are back in town!
Delayed in Chicago due to their plane arriving late and then a near miss because they waited in the bar thinking they would hear the boarding announcements (we didn’t hear them last time from that bar…nothing ever changes flying out of Chi Town) and the boys arrived home last night, with as anticipated, a suitcase full of KC merchandise and a lot of great stories to tell! They had a blast!
As yesterdays post (both of them) mentioned Don and I were off to the orthopaedic surgeon this morning to see what he thought about my knee. Long story short: I have torn my ACL. I will likely have surgery in the new year at which time they can “clean up some of the other issues in there as well.” Gulp.
The great news is that I now have a brace! Did I just say that was great news? Well it actually is because I gots to move it move it! It’s December! There is much to do! Give me a few days to get back to full weight bearing and me and my third leg will be good to go!
The doctor, who is a good friend of ours and plays hockey with Don in an Orthopaedic Surgeons hockey league (no Don is not a surgeon, but trust me if you ever saw Donny the Bull play hockey you would highly suggest he play hockey as close to anyone who knows a broken bone when he sees it as he can) made a clever point this morning. He said “if I was to guess if it would be Don or Aleksei who travelled to KC and back or Alli who went as far as the swimming pool at the Canad Inns that would be in my office this morning…it wouldn’t have been Alli!”
Yeah, yeah, yuck, yuck, yuck! Now let’s move it move it!
