Well guys, here's how it looked after two weeks.  I'm biking 5 miles a night and I have had to do physical therapy for 45 minutes per day since my diagnosis in July.   A special Thanks to Tim Vanneste for costing me 45 minutes/day for 9 months of my life not to mention that I miss hockey for 1/2 the year and $ 1,500 dollars out of my pocket. 

My sleeping is about 2-3 straight hours max.  Another big thanks to Tim.  The Motrin people are extremely happy since I am going through them like M&M's.

So much for a career as a model when I retire from hockey.

The good news is that I will be better, stronger, faster .  .  .

 

I'm still tied with Rick for goals this year.  I'm confident I will pass him by January 31st at 11:15.

 

Unless of course he gets those new Bauer's with the PPS option . . . in this case, It might take me until 11:30.

 

To learn more about what Vanneste managed to do to me check out these links.  The details are slightly more gorey.  Think about this the next time you get pissed off and go after somebody.

Pretty mild, but good description - http://www.scoi.com/aclrecon.htm

After making the skin incisions, the tendon is identified, and the central third is harvested with a bone block at each end of the tendon. Initially, the tendon is removed from the tibial tubercle area. The graft is then passed beneath the skin and retrieved from the superior incision. Harvesting is completed
