Stitches removed … OUCH!

So, as readers of this blog know … I have a new meniscus tear.

And on December 13, 2013 I had knee surgery to address my new tear.

Since then “Dr. Mom” has been providing the home care.

So today I went to see my Doctor, Dr. Juliano, for a post operation follow-up visit and the for the removal of my stitches.

The stitches were removed and … OUCH … that hurt!


After the stitches were removed Dr. Juliano came in and told us that things were looking pretty good. He was pleased when I told him that I was doing various exercises 3 times a day and in fact confirmed what I was doing was good for my post surgery care, despite what Eve thought. He also gave me an additional non-motion stretching exercise I should start doing in a couple of weeks, once I stop limping around basically.

I asked him for pictures of the surgery and he laughed and said he would get them to me prior to my next follow-up visit in a month. He stressed again that I need to take it easy with the knee and not engage in any of the heavier farm work that I typically do during the season for a month or longer.

Once I get those operation photos I will immediately post them!

In the meantime … I have to do this … please check out my Crowd Funder TV Show campaign which currently has 13 backers! Actually, we have been stuck at 13 backers for a few days now!

The segment will be coming shortly I will promptly post it once it is available! This campaign is not “all-or-nothing” and supporters get dollar for dollar matching gift cards from places like Best Buy, Home Depot, Starbucks and Sears. Talk about win-win … if you plan on doing any shopping at any of those locations it’s like supporting me for free! If you backed me on Kickstarter I hope you consider backing me on The Crowd Funder TV Show campaign! And I hope you can spread the word!

Please also check out my new Facebook page devoted to my memoir “Muckville: Farm Policy, Media and the Strange Oddities of Semi-Rural Life.”

And finally the website for my new farming public policy organization that will focus on specialty crops, Farmroot, is up and active. I think it is fantastic … check it out:
