    I am so sorry. I missed this post, somehow, until now. Much love and sympathy to you both. Making that decision is terribly hard, even when you know it's the right one. Thinking of you both.

    Argh! Apparently I missed a bunch of posts! I'm sorry, Master-K...I should have sent you hugs before about this. I can't BELIEVE what a bum run of luck you've had (no pun intended) with your knee...now, knees. How are things going with this?

    Shan, I am so sorry all this is happening to you. But perhaps it means that something much better is one its way.

    Hugs,

    I'm slacking! *beats self with wet noodle*

    Um...whenever! Seriously, I'd love to, but a lot of the CCG events have been ones more appropriate to movie-style costumes and I don't necessarily want to be the one discordant element in an otherwise slick-looking and unified troop.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. It's true, with the movie releases it's been mostly OT characters (though even I haven't been able to make the last few troops...grr). Hopefully we'll see you at the Garrison Picnic (once we figure out where and when that is). :rolleyes:

    Actually, it's the same knee (the right one). Just while the lightsaber hit took out the right side of the cartlidge and fractured the kneecap. The wreck took out the left side of the cartlidge on the same knee. So now..no cartlidge at all. Surgeon's knife is looking more and more likely. As is a total knee replacement. So hopefully, Christmas/New Years will be spent at Disneyland instead of on the table. :mad:

    Well...ARGH. On the (dubiously) bright side, I've known several people who've had full-knee replacements and all of the ones I've known have had a HUGE relief from discomfort and greatly increased mobility. So, not downplaying how icky this news is...but perhaps things will come out basically all right in the end.

    *hug*

    I have a friend who's had both knees replaced, one with a cadaver that he claims occasionally speaks through him (like a certain Captain we know?).

    Probably a cadaver ligament, not the whole knee. My brother has had his ACLs repaired on both sides, one with a porcine (oink) ligament and the other with cadaver (booowhahahahahaaaaa) tissue. But if the whole knee, KEEEWWWLL!! 99% they do it with aluminum/PVC joints these days. I know a marathoner who had his done and has had no problems since.

    Ok, that's encouraging... LOL ...hmmm dead body parts or pig parts...or maybe Droid parts. [face_laugh]

    Actually, after pretty much doubling over with the pain today (and I have a REALLY HIGH pain tolerance).. and then looking at the posts and how much better people do afterwards...that laser is starting to look a bit more friendly...

    I hope the pain goes away for this weekend Master K. Can't have you doubled over in pain while I'm visiting. :D

    Personal whine for the day:
    I've got several messages waiting for me on MySpace (my mailbox told me so)...so I try to log in and I get a happy fun error message that makes it seem like my account has been deactivated. :( C'mon MySpace! Get it together!!!

    Oh, FINE.

    Mooooooooooo!

    But I prefer Llama day:

    BRRRRRRAAWWWWWWWW! *snort* Blllllllleeeeatttt! *spits*

    You could always come down and help me move stuff out of the enclosed patio in preparation for the contractor to rip out and replace the wall next week, woo hoo. Did I get that deadpan enough? Let me try again:

    Woo.

    Hoo.

    By the way, we've tried now a couple of places on the San Jose side for Indian food. Still no real contender for Royal Taj, so I guess it really IS that good.

    Ooooh.

    Drywall.

    Woo.

    Hoo.

    ;)

    Royal Taj is great. Actually, we've got a good place where I live...but it's a bit of a haul for y'all (hour and a quarter or so!)

    Man, I hope you get OK in time to be considered for marching in the Rose Parade -- I've been reading about that on some other boards. It's a loooong 5.5 miles...my friend was in a band two years ago.

    Master K, are you in the running, as it were for the Parade?

    I am so sorry your knee is giving you so much misery.

    As much as I understand...it's pretty much the 501st and I still have to get my hiney in gear and get my stuff ready to join them!! But, it would be nice. ;)

    My understanding - you're too late. There were auditions held, and it was for stormies, etc., anyway...I think. Not other characters. :)

    *bartender at a starport cantina, drinking and waving a death stick like a baton to make a point*

    "Well ya see you got your two types of troopers. Ya got yer prime pilots who wear the black, get the missions and fly to glory, and then you got your groundpounders who can only DREAM of glory.

    So what do you groundpounders want to drink?
