Waking up tired, knowing that the day is long, sends me in a whirlwind of emotions. I did not get as much sleep as I would have liked last night and I have a long day ahead of me. And no, the lack of sleep was not due to watching 24. I simply couldn’t go to bed.
But I finished the paper. Two trips to coffee shops and one trip to Panera with a friend. And finally done.
So here is a recap of what the knee specialist told me. I am going to paraphrase a little though (for your enjoyment):
Doc: “So how does it feel?”
Bunch: “It feels a whole lot better. A bunch better really.”
Doc: “Well, since that is the case, let us cancel your MRI and then have you just work out your knee on your own with an exercise bike, etc…”
Bunch: “Oh no – I want surgery.” – Didn’t really, just wanted to make the story better.
Doc: “You don’t need surgery. You are fine. Stop complaining and go home. I have a long day ahead of me and many more patients so get off my back….You can walk. I healed you.”
Doc: “Just don’t run, you pansy.”
So yeah, I don’t have to do anything except take it easy for a little bit and work out my knee using only slight resistance. By the way, the Doctor was funny, not mean.
In closing: why haven’t you gone out and bought 24 yet? Not many more left – I promise you will never be the same once you start watching.
