Not so Hot

I won't lie. I talked the CT tech into giving me a copy of my scan Thursday morning. I don't think she knew that I would go home and attempt to read it myself. But. I did. I don't see Dr. McGorgeous until next Friday, so I'm glad I have at least a passing ability to read these things, or else I'd go nuts. My computer screen doesn't have the highest resolution, but it appears that part of the articular cartilage is gone. That means the big bone cutting surgery. Hopes weren't high before, but they are in the gutter now. Maybe I'll get some miraculous news next week anyway.


  1. fingers crossed for some good news for you next week, have been reading your blog over past week and think you have been incredibly strong throughout this ordeal. i broke my ankle (fib, tib and talus) 6 weeks ago and had a plate and screws inserted. have just started walking on it again over past two days and the pain is incredible, i have tremendous admiration for you battling on through and hope to continue to read about your journey on here.
