Everyone is using up their vacation time, so there aren’t a lot of stories. I’ll dig up what I can.
In the meantime, I’m going to the hospital this afternoon to get a Baker’s cyst drained. (It took me a while to find a place where they’d do it.)
The orthopedist explained to me why I needed to have my meniscus tear repaired if I really wanted to fix it, and then I explained to him that three people I know did have that surgery, and their cysts were back within a few months.
“So I’d much rather get it drained every few months than go through surgery and recovery,” I said. He was, as you can imagine, not happy. That boat’s not gonna pay for itself, amirite?
