My new MOO square business cards have arrived and I just love them. The square is so pleasing to my eye.
That's not all that's new. I had Total Knee Replacement surgery (right leg) on September 8th. I'll spare you the gruesome post-surgical photo.
I had it done at Hospital For Special Surgery in New York City.
My surgeon, Mathias Bostrom, MD, must have magic hands. I'm really very pleased with the result, so far.
I had been so afraid of this surgery, having heard way too many stories about how brutally painful it is. That just wasn't true, for me. In the immediate aftermath of the surgery, the pain management was really superb. It's something that HSS takes very seriously and they're very good at it. At home, I take Tylenol if I need it, and right before PT sessions, I take four milligrams of Dilaudid. And I try to remember to ice the knee several times each day. So far, so good! The pain I feel now is the kind that lessens each day. That's opposed to the pre-operative pain which was relentless and sickening and left me unable to walk for more than a block.
New plan: As soon as this is healed enough, I'm going back to get my left knee done. Wow!
