Knee Replacement
Posted by: Adam Fuson @ 2007.09.09.2227

Monday, August 20 I took my mom to Jewish Hospital at Kenwood to have her right knee replaced. Aunt Dee, the Captain, Ruthie and Mike, and I all accompanied Mom into pre-op. Even Ryan Helmick stopped by from his residency duties to chat with us for a few moments. While Dr Swank was replacing Mom's knee, the Captain and I had dinner, ran some network wire at Shane's house and cleaned Ruthie's gutters. Afterward we returned to the hospital to see Mom in her hospital room. I brought some cookies and fruit snacks, but she was pretty groggy even hours after her surgery.

In the next few days Mom progressed and was able to walk to and from the bathroom. I visited in the evening, and on the third day she was declared fit to leave. So in the afternoon Mom and I left Jewish Hospital and she spent the next few days on a bed in the green room recovering from her surgery. A nurse and a physical therapist visited every other day to ensure she was moving about and healthy. Since the surgery Mom had some trouble breathing, and at the insistence of the nurse she visited the hospital emergency room. Of course, the worst thoughts with breathing trouble are blood clots, but after a thorough checkup, she was declared healthy and we returned home.

So now nearly 3 weeks post surgery Mom is sleeping in her own room. This past Friday she had her stitches removed, and Dr Swank was impressed with her flexibility and motion. Hopefully her strength and flexibility will continue to increase with time.

Ned @ 2007.09.13 1904
  Cookies?

Ned @ 2007.09.13 1910
  Will,

I see your website works. Would you like to help on a new building project for the shop? It's semi-historical, and you have a certificate.

John,

I will be at interbike 9/25-28. Let me know if you are going to show, and I'll get you a badge, sans gun.

I'm finished using decavirate as an email device for now.

  I passed my nuclear medicine board exam today!

John @ 2007.09.16 2002
  Phones, I used to play with the X-ray machine at the dentist office where my mom works. I could've given you a few pointers.

Phones @ 2007.09.21 1823
  Yeah, I tell people nuclear medicine is like X-ray, but the similarities end at "like". I need some pointers on where to find a part time or on call nuclear medicine job through my fourth year of school.

Ned @ 2007.09.22 2237
  I'll be waiting...

  New knee

Phones @ 2007.10.07 1406
  Do you know what the new one is made out of? Obviously something more dense than bone.

Ned @ 2007.10.07 2139
  She might kneed to keep that picture with her if she is going to fly. Unless it's ceramique.

  Check out this video. Within mere hours, it became the most popular digg.com link of the last 30 days.

  Bonnie Raitt rates nuclear energy with her expertise in the country music industry.

Fuse @ 2007.10.13 2136
  Reser, Bonnie Raitt is sadly misinformed. The world needs more energy, peace and understanding.

Will, those cookies are so delectable I had to share my joy for them.

  The Red Bull Downhill Road Race in Maui, CA http://bikemag.com/news/newsarchive/110905_redbull/ I wonder what could have made Brian Lopes uneasy about racing downhill with roadies?

Nieport @ 2007.11.27 1220
  Phones you need to experience being at the front of a field sprint at the end of a race. Once you experience it, you will understand why Lopes was possibly uneasy about racing downhill with roadies.

john adams @ 2007.11.27 1450
  That article is a blast from the past, I don't think they hold that race anymore. We can go on and on about who handles bikes better, but honestly Downhill MTB bikes with 9 inches or more travel? Doesn't anyone remember downhill BMX? Those guys were hitting 75ft gaps on BMX bikes, no travel.

Nieport @ 2007.11.27 2337
  I hope I didn't come off trying to argue over who handles their bikes better. It really comes down to what 'roadies' will do when it comes down to a sprint. I think Lopes says it best with "I've heard stories about some of these road guys. And I've done some road races; I've seen how crazy they go for a box of Power Bars, like it's $10 grand or something. If I was racing against E.C., Duncan [Riffle] and Weir I wouldn't be at all sketched out."

bremer @ 2007.11.28 0922
  hell yeah!! http://ronpaulblimp.com/

???????????? @ 2007.11.28 1207
  Ned have you be doing some training lately? http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech/2007/probikes/?id=ned_overend_specialized_epic07

Ned @ 2007.11.28 2048
  No, but godzulla did put up the sail away song on the webiste for the fuse, since he's into sailing now.

Phones @ 2007.12.02 1758
  I agree with John. Those downhill bmx guys were amazing. Certainly no room for error in that event. Do they still hold downhill bmx races, or was that a short lived X-Games stunt?
