The doctor will see you now....

O.K. So here is the scoop on my ankle as of right now. I went to the orthopedic specialist today and he took more x-rays and poked and prodded and found out that I chipped a bone in my ankle. Now that was on the side that was not giving me much trouble. So he ordered an MRI for next week to check out what is going on with the other side. He said there could be some ligament damage there. So the prognosis is surgery for sure to take out the bone chip and to fix anything that shows up on the MRI. I am not looking forward to that! I also had him look at my knee that I hurt way back in high school. It has been bothering me more and more lately. He also ordered an MRI for that one and hinted at surgery to repair a weak patella. For now I am walking with one of those cool black boots that keep your foot stable. I am stylin' now!!

In other health related news, I had a CT scan of my head on Monday (yes I still have a brain). It was ordered by my ENT doctor. It turns out that I have a deviated septum and that may be the cause of my intense snoring (just ask Jill) and breathing problems at night. I go back next week for a follow up for that one.

Man, I am way too young to have this many things wrong with me. I talk like I am 70 something. Yeah I take seven pills a day, see the doctor at least once a week etc. Man this sucks! What is going to be like when I am 70? Oh well, I guess you play the hand you are delt.
I will update later in between doctor appointments, naps, and games of cribbage. Until then...


  • Holy cow! You sound like you played offensive line for a couple of decades! You're in our prayers for a smooth surgery and recouperation, bro.
