    I am also sending good vibes. These vibes include tie-dyed colored kittens for good measure because nothing fixes EVERYTHING like multi-color kittens. :)

    You could always get a pimped-out wheelchair, like Stephen Hawking in The Simpsons.

    Failing that, join the Wheelchair Mafia.

    So I had my follow up appointment today. I had xrays done, and was told that they look great. My stitches were taken out, snd the incision is healing nicely. I've been worried about my knee not bending, so I asked my doctor when I would be able to bend my knee. He said, "right now," and proceeded to bend my knee. I wasn't at all ready for it, but he bent me to 45 degrees... not bad at all. I do not need surgery for the acl yet. I likely wont need to think about that until six months or more post surgery. I've now got a brace with hinges and met with a physical therapist who gave me all sorts of exercises to do three times a day. I'm not allowed to put any weight on it at all, but I can exercise it. So I'm going to do all my exercises as directed, and plan to ask if I can drive at my next appointment for weeks from now. The hinged brace is amazing... it makes me feel like less of an invalid. I'm still wheelchair bound, but am healing at a good pace.

    Congrats on not needing surgery at the moment. And congrats on getting bent over. :)

    I wont... I was telling Vin yesterday, that I've been eating healthier and can't wait to exercise since the injury. Once I'm able to put weight on it, I'm motivated to get it as strong as possible. I was overjoyed the get exercises from the physical therapist. If I do gain some weight, though, I suppose it would be pretty natural... I mean, I can't exactly ride a bike or run right now. :p

    Broken tibia + slippery concrete surrounding swimming pool = recipe for disaster.

    Fair enough, but with proper spotting and easing into the pool, the low-impact aerobic exercise that swimming provides is probably the best exercise for anyone with bone issues...lol "bone issues."

    Anyway I understand that there is a lot of water-based physical rehab that people go through. I still think swimming is the best activity on the planet...well, second best, but it's still awesome.

    Oh, I know that swimming is the best exercise. I'm just saying that I have an aversion to concrete, especially wet concrete. :p

    I like to write my name in wet concrete.

    I also like to write my name in the snow.

    Now that you're more machine than Harpuah, a number of questions raise themselves. Perhaps the most pressing is the 'who would win in a fight, Harpuah or Mecha Harpuah?'

    In all seriousness... :( [:D] :( (tiny .gif yellow ppl offer a clumsy means of expression for the emotional stunted like me :)). You ok?

    1. Harpuah would win... I know all of Mecha Harpuah's weaknesses.

    2. [:D]

    3. You're not emotionally stunted

    4. I've been better, but could be worse.

    5. HI!! [:D]

    After more thought, I have decided that Kristie would kick the **** out of both harpuah and mecha harpuan.

    I am in pain... my physical therapy exercises are kicking my ass.

    Must have been thinking of this thread last night.

    Dreamt that the doctors removed your leg blow the knee and gave you detachable tools to screw on. You showed me how you could shovel snow with one, sweep and wash a floor. Even better was the fact you were becoming famous for your paintings when you attached an artist's brush.

    Cold medicine induced dreams are weird.

    Will you finally give up your fraudulent hippie lifestyle now that we all know you have quite literally become less natural with each passing injury? More machine than Harpuah, indeed. Plapy was right: the Dark Side has made you unnatural.

    I live a fraudulent hippie lifestyle? You sure do make a lot of assumptions, having never actually spoken to me. :p

    I had a pretty nice early - morning, drug - induced conversation with Pete last year, after they placed the titanium tacks into my abdomen (true story). He was there for phase one of the cyborg conversion.

    I've decided that I'm going to place an ad in a local newspaper. I require a slave who will work for free - or perhaps for severe crutch beatings. There's got to be somebody out there who would enjoy being knocked unconscious in exchange for light to moderate housekeeping.

    PS Frieda, your dream sounds amazing. I think you should keep and publish a dream journal. <3
