Yes, the med tech is shaving Dick's leg! There were actually two pieces of cartilage that had to be fixed, plus a bit of arthritis was found and scraped. Yuck. Dick has to be on crutches for a week just for stability (he is weight bearing), then he goes back to the doc for a check up and hopefully a gold star:-) He stayed beached on the couch all afternoon, with Parker checking out the web surfing. Yes, Parker is wearing a baby tee shirt to prevent him from licking an almost healed skin rash. Don't laugh at him...it is working and the shirt comes off soon! And Dick only has to keep his leg elevated and iced for 24 hours. That is a loooong time...he is bored already. Sigh. It could be worse.
