the good, the bad, and the ugly

This post is not for the faint of heart.  If you are not ready to see some real brusing, I would consider closing your browser window now.  I promise, all I show is my ugly leg covered with brusing.  Nothing else gross. 

The Good:
-I go to the orthopedic in the morning.
-I got more drugs for the pain.  This time it is a higher dose that I can take more frequently.  Thank you PCP.
-Rollover minutes on the cell phone
-I can walk with one crutch around the house.
-The swelling has decreased slightly, as you can see in the last picture (which I contribute to my finally resting my knee consistently)

The Bad:
-I am growing very bored of sitting around doing absolutely nothing all day.
-I have used way way way too many minutes on my cell phone.
-The bruising is looking worse each day still.
-When my PCP walked into the room, both he and his med student said "wow" when they saw my leg.  Never a good sign.
-My PCP thinks I am most likely getting surgery.

The Ugly:

Wow is right! Are you a Twilight fan? If so, at least you'll have Breaking Dawn to keep you company for a few days after Sat! :-)

HOLY COW!!!! That is some crazy/beautiful bruising you've got going on there. It's too bad about possibly needing surgery. There's a hospital I would reccommend, but I think you are too old to be cared for there. But the nurses are great. It's called Primary Children's Medical Center. They are great there.
