Two weeks and I final got the nasty staples out. Yep, Jim, my nurse came over yesterday pulled the suckers and gave me this cool strip job. It feels so good to sleep face down again. Mark my PT was here today, he stretched me out and got me to 115 degrees of flex. Man, that's the bitch part, stretching the patella tendon, OUCH! Not much else to report except going out with my wife for dinner to Smith and Wolenski's Saturday night. First date since the operation. Can't wait.
