Nine Days Later

This is what my knee looks like nine days after surgery.  I had an arthroscopy to smooth out the meniscus and underside of the patella.  The bruise didn't show up until almost a week later.  It's still swollen, but it doesn't hurt too much.

When we were at the dog park today, I said to a young couple who had two dogs there today, "Let me sit down - I just had knee surgery."  I had the TENS unit on - four electrodes attached above and below the knee cap, and I explained what it was for, after they inquired.  The young woman asked me, "How did that happen?"  I said, "I'm old!"  and then I busted out laughing.  I don't think young people expect older people to say things like that.
