Topic: I must be crazy or stupid.

Well in reality probably a bit of both.

Having moved away from Chicago winters many years ago simply because I am not built for them was a good decision for us. Working in the Caribbean in the winter ranks at one of the best winter decisions ever!

Well this week I get to go back to Chicago. Managed to tear my meniscus cartelage. Ouch.

I have been using ice to fix it. My own prescription mind you LOL. And it worked on some level along with trying to stay off of it. But I flew back to get the diagnosis and was told that continue walking on it was stupid. Oops. Chicago as opposed to Las Vegas because I know and trust this orthopedic surgeon. How sad a comment on my life is it when I actually have a specialist like that I have used multiple times?

Turns out that cartelage is fairly important. Used to be they just removed it and virtually guaranteed a knee replacement would be in your future. Mine just gets a trim. Hopefully doesn't need more.

Should be an easy recovery. Especially compared to the shoulder replacement and ACL replacement and all that. Theoretically it should be a few days at most.

So I once again proclaim that I am hoping this is it! (Can one proclaim and hope in the same sentence? Well I just did!)

You're in our prayers, Danny.

I, for one, feel your pain.

I can imagine. I am hopefully avoiding what you just had done.

On the bright side it brings us home and to LA a bit sooner.

I think you are more crazy than stupid. Anyone can take a wrong step.

Best wishes Danny.

Avoid those bad joints.
