My knee surgery went well

Hey, guys. Just a quick note to say I’m recovering from surgery and by all accounts it was just about perfect. The docs say my x-rays look like a regular ol’ knee with a few screws in it. The surgery was expected to take 3-4 hours, but they did it in 2 because everything went just right.

Hurts like hell, but not as bad as getting hit by a car in the first place.

Okay, just wanted to check in. Thanks to my guest-bloggers this week, and I’ll see you guys soon.

P.S. Click here for a pic of the new incision, if you’re at all interested. It’s actually not as gross as the first one, which tells you how gross the first one was.

P.P.S. People are asking about the “JK” written on my leg in that pic. No, it doesn’t stand for “Just Kidding.” My fantastic surgeon, Dr. John Klimkiewicz, wrote his initials there before the surgery. I guess so he’d remember which one was the right leg. Er, I mean the correct leg!

    It’s only funny till the open up the wrong knee.

    Holy mother of God! I would not want to see the other incision.

    Good luck with that. I’m sure you’ll be hobbling around in no time.

      Then don’t look.

      But thank you! This recovery should be better than the previous one.

    Good news, Treachie, take care and God bless!

    You should sell that Twitpic to Cannibal Corpse and ask them to write a song about it.

    By the way, why did JK Rowling sign your leg?
