I remind me of my brother - Thursday, Dec. 28 (LAS)

Today is my brother’s birthday.  I wasn’t sure how to best get ahold of him.  My plan was to try to call, but since I was getting his cell number from my mom when the alarm went off on Monday, I still don’t have it.  So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOE!! I got news today that I am even more like him than I knew I was yesterday.  We have both had the pleasure, now, of experiencing a torn meniscus.   

Today was monthly water sampling.  I quickly learned I didn’t have the bottles to make the process efficient, but eventually muddled my way through it.  We do monthly sampling of our water supply and emergency water supply for coliform/bacteria, lead, and copper. Cleanest water on earth. :)  

The physical therapist from McMurdo flew in yesterday and I had a scheduled follow-up appointment with her today.  She was pleased with the calf muscle repair and the speed with which I had gotten myself back into active mode.  After a check-out on the calf muscle, I spoke with her about the knee issue(s) that I had been having.  I described the sledding scene that made the “pop” in the knee back on Dec 3rd and the feelings since then.  From a PT standpoint, she wasn’t real impressed that I had picked up volleyball without getting a knee brace.  She was slightly comforted that I had placed an order for a variety of braces through my mom since the pain was still there.

She did the standard knee tests and is pretty convinced that there is some decent damage to the outer piece of meniscus on the right knee.  We chatted about options and even the possibility of seeing a specialist in CHC during my R&R if it isn’t feeling better by then.  We’ll see.  She then told me that medical had a supply of braces here at Pole and went and dug one up for me to use if I was going to insist on playing volleyball - which, of course, I am.  She also gave me some strengthening exercises to build the muscles around my knee to alleviate pain.
