Got Problems?

Recommended Posts

Man what a way to spend your Birthday Ole Gray, unless the result is having Kelly Bo wait on you hand and foot all day, then that's not too bad  :D

 

Just got back from my little surgery and yes, I am playing the patient card all day today ;)  :P .  Actually my Birthday is tomorrow (29th) and I was going out to play golf however looks like Georgia is finally getting some much need rain....  Docs post surgery orders was to take it easy for four days.  With the rain coming, I will be obeying his orders :rolleyes:

Wow, four days of lounging around and saying "babe, can you bring me a beer and a bag of chips"   LOL  

 

I know after I got home from my knee replacements, i felt guilty about Michelle doing everything, waiting on me and cleaning up after me.   But then I kinda got used to it.   I may or may not have intentionally slowed my recovery down a bit...LOL

I think that I need to fire our head custodian. I hate firing people but when you walk the campus and are unable to identify a single completed project begun over the past three months....it's time. :(

I learned from one of my early mentors to have the following approach about firing people and handling guilt.   You aren't firing them, they did that themselves, you're just doing the paperwork. 

 

I hate to see anyone lose their jobs at anytime, and of course around the holidays is even tougher, but if it needs to be done, you're not doing anyone any favors by letting it linger.

Thanks - I'm not the least bit guilty as I'm not the one who didnt do the work.

 

I just feel poorly that it must be done.

Oh I get it.  It was a rare time that I felt great about it, regardless of how justified it was.

Top of my head hurts, side of my nose hurts, and I bled all over my nice new pillow I recently bought.  The good thing is the pillow case I had on it was thick enough to catch it before it got through. I put some peroxide on it and the blood came right out!   My wife told me about that little trick and it show nuff works.   Skin cancer surgery today and the Doc had to take an extra layer off side my nose as the first layer did not show clear of bad cells.  After I had returned home and woke up from my nap. there was blood around my eye. I must of rolled over and pressed the wrong way on my surgery place. :unsure: Heck I got up, drove to the drug store and picked up my pain med and antibiotic then over to Publix for some groceries.   I had all the hawt chicks checking out my swollen eye.  RevKev knows his stuff as they must of thought I was a prize fighter!

Thanks buddy!   I'll be good tomorrow and might even head to the golf course if the rain passes through tonight.  A little slicing and dicing won't stop this old coot. :D

I had my knee replaced 3 years ago on Nov 7.  My wife took very good care of me.  The next year in Nov, she had her knee replaced so I had to do the same for her; cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping.  I did OK except for the laundry.  I messed up a couple of times, so she doesn't make me do that anymore!   ;)  I should have messed up on all the other stuff too.  Dang!

Dang Kenny, that makes four of us that I am aware of that have TKR's!  I've had three surgeries on my right knee.  One partial (called a bi lateral) , then right side of knee scoped, then total knee replacement.   My knee looks like an overgrown melon from all the scar tissue and soft tissue damage.

 

 

This morning (skin cancer removed) I'm looking like I had a head ramming contest with a mountain goat. My right eye is almost shut with a nice purple glow and the top of my head where I had another basil cell carcinoma cut out ,feels like a bunch of fire ants had a biting contest. :o 

 

Hmmmmm I'm gonna have to rethink my golfing today. :unsure:  Heck it has been raining all morning so the course will be soggy so it may be a good day to stay home and wimp it out.

Happy Birthday Ole Grey!!

 

And yeah your math and mine are the same,  you, me, Lefty and Ken all with at least one TKR.  As you know I had both done the same day, dad always said don't do anything halfway...ha

 

Maybe we need a surgery of the day thread here...LOL

Happy Birthday, you young whippersnapper!!   

 

I tore up my left knee playing volleyball in 1971 and had cartilage taken out the old fashion way.  My knee ached for years.  Two months before I had the TKR on my left knee, I tore the meniscus in my right knee, so they scoped it.  It had to be healed before they would do the TKR.  The Doc said after the replacement that if I had waited another year to have the surgery, he would have had to do a bone graft.

 

BTW, the internet takes 10 years off your age because only young people understand this new fangled technology!   ;)

Absolutely!!

 

The last few years before the surgery, my left knee hurt so much that it was hard to get to my lead side on the follow-through.  My GHIN had risen to 14 in the summer before surgery.  It took me a year after surgery to get down to 10, and this year I made it to the lowest I have ever been... 7.9 before the colder weather set in.  I should have done the surgery years ago!!

Man, it's like I was reading my story there.    My left knee was originally injured in a softball game in my 20's  got dislocated when my cleats stuck in the dirt making a turn.   Then I reinjured it in my 40's jumping out of the back of a semi truck onto an ashphalt parking lot (thinking I was still in my 20's..ha)   It got so bad by the end of 2013, I couldn't finish a round of golf in 2014.  I put off going to the Dr. until July 2014, and by that time my right one was hurting just as bad.    He told me after looking at the X-Rays that the right was even worst than the left now and they both needed it.   

 

I had a golf trip planned for September, so we set the date for early October.   Much like your timetable, I played pain free in 2015 but even though I could swing more onto my left side, everything else was out of sync, and my hC went from 18 to 23 by the end of the year.   But I was enjoying playing again.

 

At the start of 2016, I got as high as 26, but with being able to practice and play more, I got back down to 17 by the end of the year.   My goal next year is to practice a lot more and get that somewhere between 13 and 15 at least.
