Basically, he is to keep it in the knee immobilizer, elevated, and with ice for four weeks. FOUR WEEKS! That will not be easy for him, at all. The theory is that there is torn cartilage, and that it will heal itself in those weeks. Let's hope!
In addition, he can't really sit at the computer (we have just a desktop), so he will not be blogging for those weeks.
You're stuck with me in the meantime.
Nugget is really good about doing whatever we are doing. So, if Jim has to sit around, Nugget is happy to do so, too.
Jim agreed to tell us a story or two on video, so there is that! He's thinking about what to tell you all and I hope to get the first one up by the weekend.
In purple thong news -- I guess he will have to wait until he can stand again.
The good news is that we saw Bob a few weeks ago. He asked Jim to tell you that he thanks each of you who contributed to the fundraising efforts that he thanks you from the bottom of his heart.
Jim was planning on an update blog post about seeing Bob, which I will do for him soon. There is a Jim & Bob photo to post with it. I like to take a photo of them each time we all get together. They've been friends since the fourth grade. I sure wish I could have seen photos from back then. I didn't meet them until we were all in high school.
I guess that's all I know today.
Thank you for stopping by! Nugget says, "Hey!"
