The Dread-Pirate Sparsebeard slept (under anesthesia :-) through our big morning storms today. We lost some tree branches and almost lost the trash cans, but our 14 yo son found them down the street. If that's the worst of it, then we can live with that!
DP's knee surgery took about three hours. The doctor found one large tear of the meniscus (cartilage) and also was concerned about a cyst on the side of the knee. He said these cysts generally resolve themselves after surgical repairs are made to the knee, so he'll talk to us more about it at the post-op appointment on Friday.
Sparsebeard really wanted to eat some pizza as we were leaving the medical clinic, but I reminded him that the nurse said he could have small, plain meals today, then fun foods tomorrow. But I ask, do pirates eat pizza??
