Welcome ya'll,

Thanks for checking out my blog. This is mostly my own crazy thoughts on a variety of subjects, but primarily they will be about movies, tv, and books. Being a movie junkie, rabid reader, and TV show-aholic, this blog is just another excuse to feed my addictions. [a quiet 'yay me']. Hope you enjoy, Clancy Metzger

Surgery, blood clots and bracelets... oh my!

I did not forget ya'll. Really I didn't. I had surgery. So, I had a good excuse.

I had a tear in my meniscus. That's the squishy cuppy thing that holds the thigh bone above the lower leg bone. This is very technical, just go with the flow. So, anyway, they went in and did surgery to smooth it out and everything was fine. Until I went in for my post op visit and they found a blood clot. Now I'm on these industrial blood thinners to dissolve that puppy. So, I'm being very careful not to get all crazy and bruise myself or get a bloody nose or cut or whatever. Because - on blood thinners - it may not stop bleeding.  And I'm under strict orders from my besty to not die. So, I'm trying to be a good friend and follow his direction.

Aside from that, I'm garnering quite the collection of hospital bracelets. Every outpatient test, operation, or ER visit gets its own new bracelet. Good times.

My doctors are all great though and the hospital staff have all been excellent, so that's nice.

This has turned into much less of a post than anticipated. Much less than the witty title might suggest. My apologies.

I'm pretty tired, so I think I shall nap instead. More posts of a more interesting nature to come.
Just not today. :)
