Driving Mr. Daisy

| | Comments (0)

Dominique, my cousin, was my latest victim whom I got to help with my transportation into New York City. She drove my car into the city with me as her passenger. When I got to my car, I saw a TYPEWRITTEN note on my windshield:

"Please deactivate your alarm. It has been chirping non-stop for a day now.
If you do not deactivate it, I will have the police deactivate it for you.

No one would steal this car anyway...

Regards
Garden Street"

My car is a soon-to-be-vintage 1993 Volvo, my friends. Vintage in about 23 years. Matt, who drove me into surgery on Thursday, must have returned to Hoboken, parked my car and set the alarm. I forgot to warn him that my car alarm is buggy and simply goes off on its own. I should have told him to lock the car and not set the alarm. Fortunately, the police stopped by on Saturday to tell us my alarm was going bonkers - and Kristen fixed it. But it still was funny to see this note today. Whoever I angered on Garden Street - sorry! I have a good excuse!

I saw Dr. D (my orthopedic doctor) today and he removed my bandages, inspected the stitches and reapplied new bandages. Everything looks good. I was expecting to get the stitches out today, but I didn't realize they had to stay in about 2 weeks after the surgery. My next appointment is for Wednesday of next week to remove the stitches. I was surprised by how small the incisions were, and how few stitches were applied.

He told me to keep off the leg, but i'm allowed to bend it. So i'm happy that I can bend it now, because sitting in one position with the leg stretched in front of me gets very old, very fast. Sadly, I still have to wear the brace at all times. I hate the brace, its uncomfortable and annoying.

I'm going back to work tomorrow. Since the brace allows me to bend my leg while sitting there is no reason for me to stay home. I'm not in any pain, only my knee is tight from not moving it very much.

I'm kind of looking forward to getting back to work, only because i'd like my life to get back to the way it was. With everything that has been going on the last couple of weeks - my world has been turned upside down.
