Surgery a sort-of success
Well, the surgery is finally over. However, it was nothing like I, or my doctor, expected. Apparently I didn't tear my meniscus or even tear the ligaments they thought I had, instead I somehow managed to chip my femur right where it meets my patella and tore a lot of ligaments around that area. So instead of just repairing some ligaments and re-aligning my knee cap they had to drill 4 holes in my femur to allow cartlidge to re-grow and then shave down the chip and the underside of my patella. So now I have to be off my leg for 4 weeks instead of 2 weeks. Looks like Josh will be getting plenty of good husband practice :).
