Adam broke his kneecap into 4+ pieces last Sept, the removed the wires that
held it together yesterday in Jennings...

I was in a car wreck 2 weeks later (also near Jennings), still healing up
from that (10+ broken bones)...

How is it over there? Haven't seen it since hurricane Ike, put it on the
teevee...

No therapy required after this last surgery, he was moving his leg somuch
that the wires were starting to hurt... More than likely he'll need an
implant at sometime, because of arthritis from the repairs. Staples come out
tomorrow, they removed the wires they installed last year to hold the
kneecap together, last week. Cut to remove them was nearly the same size as
the one to install them... When they installed the knee wires, they removed
the appliance from his elbow, he hasn't regained any range of motion in it
though...

We were in Port Neches and Nederland yesterday, for a funeral...
