The Journey Knee and Me?

knee-journey-diagram.php.jpgHmmm... this looks fairly robotic doesn't it? I had an appointment today with Dr. ferro who is an Arthritis, Orthopaedic & Sports Specialist who is a total joint replacement specialist. His conclusion.... the Journey Knee is what I need. That really wasn't the news I was wanting to hear, I was hoping I would be a candidate for a partial but he says more than likely the Journey Knee will be the best choice for my knee . The good news was that I could return to work (depending on how I was doing) limited basis at 2-3 weeks and by 12 weeks you are pretty much recovered.

Check out his website:

This doctor who does about 6-10 joint replacements a week and has been in on the development of joint replacement surgery.  He is based out of Arroyo Grande and San Luis Obispo but comes to Bfld. once a week.

Happy 4th of July/Happy Birthday

Happy 4th of July from my little firecrackers!
Aubrey is ready for the fireworks
Saucie isn't sure what all the fuss is about
4th of July Birthday Pizza for Justin's 28th Birthday

Hmmm... I have the hardest time placing pictures where I want them and then I can't write around them. In any case I got this desire to have a 36" Cataldo's Pizza today so I called Kurt, Alisha, Justin, Barbie and Aubrey over for a 4th of July/Justin's Birthday Celebration.  I am out of town for his birthday tomorrow so we kind of slid the birthday celebration in there too!
The 4th of July collar for Saucie was quite the hit with Aubrey and not quite the hit with Saucie.
