All that crab meat up there is my abused ACL and its attendant scar tissue. Femur is in the top left. Doc was pretty emphatic that I built up a ton of scar tissue in a short time. How does that information make its debut into the here and now? In the Doctor’s words, the therapists will have to be “extremely aggressive” in restoring my range of motion. Sweet.
But this is just a teaser. One of the most enduring memories I have of the procedure is the sound of that steel device that he called his shop-vac. It was hypnotic and relaxing to listen to it pulsate from the other side of the sheet while staring at the monitor and watching it clean up all the junk on the other side of my skin.
You’ll hear that sound in the video when I post it. That sound and the sound of drills and beeps and hisses and laughs – we had fun.
I’ve been a bit foggy for a few days, but I think I’ll be able to put something together tomorrow.
Thanks for tuning in!
