We Interrupt Regularly Scheduled Programming For...

....knee surgery. I am leaving for Anchorage today. I will be having knee surgery on Wednesday. It will be my 5th surgery on my left knee. I'm not sure what flavor it will be this time...maybe another partial menisectomy or another acl reconstruction, or perhaps both again. I won't know what they have done to me this time until I wake up. If they just work on the meniscus cartilage then I should be home by Friday, but if they replace the acl as well I won't be home until next Monday. I first injured this knee in 2003 and it has been a major problem ever since. I hope that this will be the last surgery I have to have on it for a long time.

Obviously I will be in no shape for blogging for a few days so I have scheduled some posts to pop up while I am away. Some are from a boat ride up the river we took yesterday and some pics that I took around town. Others will be odds and ends of past stuff that I have pulled from the archives. They will be scheduled to post at 9am Alaska time.

Good Luck, Cathy!

Problems with the landing gear are a struggle... best to get them fixed before you get old and decrepit like ... well, "others" (not me).
