Tales from the Perimeter: Knee Surgery

Perimeter meaning the 6 mile patrol road inside the fence of the military installation on which I work, where some half a dozen of us comprise a pool of running “talent” and strive to show up for a noontime run a couple times a week if we can escape our desks. We share a lot and these guys are one of the core pillars of my sanity.

One of our noontime running group, KK, buggered up his knee to the point where he could no longer bend it properly.  It was not a particular incident or accident, but rather a cumulative effect that resulted in a torn meniscus.  So last week he had arthroscopic surgery to fix it.

Once I got the report that KK was doing well, I could not resist combining busting him at home via email, using a children's book that the bride and I had bought for Mister Tristan (the human being, not the blog):


Glad to hear that the knee surgery went well.

However, if your recovery takes a sudden change for the worse, plus you somehow are transformed into a cat, you still may have a productive career in piracy ahead of you.
