The Post-Op Follow-Up Round-Up

Friday, June 26, 2009 17:27 21 Comments

I had my post-op appointment Friday over at UCSF. My surgeon saw me as I came in through the hallway and said hi, so my natural reaction was to impress her with an impromptu Irish jig. My reasoning at the time was to show her I’m perfectly healthy (note my joyous footwork!) and am so […]

Week In Review

Friday, January 23, 2009 12:00 3 Comments

This week, Boots’ story has been viewed many many times, and his photos are finally up! Also, quite a few of you had some opinions about Prednisone (and rightly so), while others supplied good examples of movies to rent while in the hospital.
