My father-in-law and his slapstick

Jim, my illustrious father-in-law, is now recovering from surgery himself. You see, he couldn’t handle all the attention that I am getting, so on Christmas Eve, he threw himself down onto their ice-covered driveway and ruptured some ligaments and generally messed himself up. He was repaired today, and is home resting comfortably. (And awaiting all that attention)
Please call him. The poor man is desperate.


There is evil afoot

Are you ready for this? I will be visiting the operating room yet again on Friday. My foot has a large, non-healing gap in it, so Dr. Brock is going to do a “power lavage” which is basically blasting the wound with high pressure saline and removing the bacteria, gunk and necrotic (dead) tissue until it bleeds so that the wound can start the healing process over again and hopefully close up this time. I don’t have any pictures of my foot right now (I can’t find my digital camera anyway) and I know you all will be disappointed. But maybe after the procedure, if you are all good little boys and girls, I may grant you a peek at my now famous foot. 🙂
