Well, the hits just keep coming. Al drove up last night to take me to Winston this morning for the followup appointment with my orthopedic doctor. The infection in my spine is also in my replaced knee. He has to go in and take the knee out, put in a placer while I wear a brace then put in a new knee.

He went back home this afternoon. He is having a procedure done tomorrow so I am flying solo. I was sending him home the end of the month of August anyway. I have to be able to do this on my own.

    Oh jeez, that’s not good news. Getting rid of the infection reservoir is a good thing but man o man, replace the joint?

    On the other hand, it was always part of the problem so dealing with it now is just a continuation of the process, and chipping away at the issue.

    As long as you keep making progress toward “healed”, it’s a good thing.

    This whole ‘getting old’ thing is not for the weak or faint of heart.

    Keep fighting,
