the joke I tried to make about you and having three legs or one leg?...
I had assumed you'd have sense to find some sort of a crutch sweetie.
Why torture yourself?
Get any old sturdy stick or have ded pick up a dandy second hand cane at some antique store. So you can go for walks and stuff.
It's only for a few months right?
And keep that bad leg working even if you can't walk on it -- every damn day!!!
You've already seen what happens when muscles atrophy.

I only give you a hard time B because I care.
Get a cane, use it with style, go to the show!!!! And a top hat???;)

Up for the dentist today...
But in brighter, much brighter news: I'm walking!

Well, of sorts... it's still not pleasant, my muscles have deteriorated unbelievably, but I can walk!

Yesterday I took my daughter to the local clinic to get a blood test. As we were leaving, I held the door open for someone who was following me down the stairs.

It was the doctor who - six months ago - misdiagnosed my heart problem. He concluded I was having an allergic reaction, when in fact I had a blocked coronary artery.

He didn't recognize me. He just smiled vaguely and said thank you.

He never knew how close he came to getting his skull cracked open.,,

That's not really odd, that he didn't recognize you. Doctors see so many people on a daily base.

But I'm very glad you didn't hurt him...

Not sure what is the exact cause: a badly working firewall is among the possibilities. But some asshole(s) installed "index" files in all our folders that basically said "this place has been hacked, contact these people if you want it fixed".

Consequently, all ploeg.ws sites showed the replaced file.

I replaced the PackardGoose and bonny.ploeg.ws index files. My father reinstalled some other sites, downloaded a new firewall and replaced our password.

I think the operative word there was "asshole." It seems to be the only necessary part of a hacker...

True enough. Well, inbetween waiting for my father to record a WW2 documentary series onto DVD and opening (and closing) the door to my mother, I did some research into the hacker and sent a complaint to his server.

Tonight Mrs. Flycoon and I watched the final vote on the Health Care bill. It needed 216 votes to pass, and it got 219.

Nice piece of political theater. Various Presidents have been trying to pass a bill like this for over a hundred years, and it took Barack Obama to actually get it done. The Republicans were betting he couldn't do it, so they didn't bother to negotiate to get a bill more to their liking. As a result, the Republicans ended up with nothing. They got their asses kicked.

And it's about time. Like thousands of other people, my brother lost his house - and just about everything else - because he didn't have health insurance and got sick. Then he couldn't get health insurance because he had a pre-existing condition.

Hopefully it ends here and now. I'm fucking sick of living in a Third-World country...

Congratulations MTF, it's always been one of the things that baffled me about the US.

Same here... The bill we have from our insurance is high at 800 euros (own risk) but at least I can still get sick this year without too much trouble beside the illness.

My plaster came off today. And I had another X-ray taken. Initially my doctor said I needed more plaster, but the doctor who was helping me decided against it. I now got a long brown sock I need to wear for support.

Right now I'm just letting my leg breathe. It looks GROSS, it's very flakey, particularly around the surgery wounds.

Walked to the store and back, which is quite a distance. And when I came home I discovered a mis-posted letter, which I returned to the rightful owners, which was also a bit of a walk. That nasty crutch peeled some skin off my underarm.

Well, there are a lot of things that baffle me about the US, but the lack of a national health system and the inadequacy of social security in general has always been pretty high on the list, seeing as I've always lived in a country where these things can be taken for granted. Mind you, our national health system is far from perfect.
