Take a knee


While I was at Summer Camp - West I managed to screw up my left knee pretty badly, but by the time it was really goofed up, I did not want to have to deal with the O-5 who wouldn't put in an I.V. to hydrate me because "someone would have to stay after closing time."

So, as I was going through medical inprocessing, it was suggested I go see the orthopedic doc who's on post and have him look at my knee.

Turns out that he's a grad of a couple of Jesuit schools, and we wound up yakking about a lot of stuff other than just my knee and bad feet. Small world.

I've got an appointment on Tuesday to have an MRI, so we'll see what's going on (I hope!). It's been a bit frustrating to have significantly less mobility of late than usual. I'm really glad I've not been trying to climb up into an upper bunk, with my knee being the way it is, that's for sure!

I'll keep you posted.

Blessings and peace to one and all,


Fr. Tim, SJ

The tide has turned a bit. You found a new friend, some real physical help. Even got a firm bed on the floor.

Must be that song you were singing :-))

Blessings Captain, Doctor, Father Tim!!
