A number of folks have inquired about the status of my recovery from the shattered kneecap I suffered back in February, so tonight seems like a good time to provide an update.
Essentially, everything is on schedule as expected. I started physical therapy a couple of weeks ago and have gone from about 50 degrees of motion a few days after surgery to 90 degrees a few days ago. There’s significantly less scar tissue on the healing incision, too.
Lots of exercises to do and a good bit of learning about the amazing anatomy of the human knee as well. Unfortunately, the doc —Dr. Scott Adams of Orthopedic Associates of Central Maryland, a great sports doctor who could also make a fortune doing standup comedy — says I still have to wear the brace that immobilizes the knee for a few more weeks. He was not joking on that one!
Thank you for all the kind notes and, especially, for the prayers.
