Laid Up w/Company...

Surgery went smooth. I stressed all the way up to the moment of them knocking me out. All in all it wasn't too bad. I had some problems getting comfortable and some solid pain the first night. After that I just kept myself Medicated, Elevated and Iced. The leg photos are from 2 days after the surgery...Swollen and sore. The swelling has gone down and my stitches are out. Healing up very nicely. I also had my first visit with the Physical Therapist...He was impressed with my range of motion...come to think of it so far with all of my post-op visits everyone has been very impressed with my progress...I am taking that as a good sign. I am off of crutches and back to work as of today(Monday).

As you can see the Girls and Murphy did a great job of keeping me company during the day.

Andrea and Murphy have taken their next step in their relationship...they are now friends.

Megan was a freaking superstar!!!! I lover you, Mama! I couldn't of done it without you! Best nurse ever!

And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone else that cruised by, brought me food, called, emailed, txt'd. Thanks for all the support guys! I have a great group of friends and family! I felt the love for sure....and I appreciate it!

Next PT goal is to have the leg lay perfectly flat on the ground and be able to bend the leg to a perfect 90 degrees...right now I am about an inch away from being flat on the ground and my 90 is about a 65. Sticking with my stretches...Trying to make this as smooth and as painless as a transition as I can.

I can't believe it is November 22nd...Holy crap...When did that happen?!?!

Grace & The Mt. Helix Marching Band...

Mira Mesa High was hosting a Marching Band competition a few weeks back. We were already planning on checking it out...and then we found out Meggy's cousin Grace was going to be there competing...So we locked in the plans. We walked over to the ol Mira Mesa High Football field and watched a few of San Diego County's High School Marching Bands do their thing. It was really cool to check out...Kind of funny to be a fly on the wall and be in attendance with an event like that...and not actually be involved...So much work/effort/coordination going down. I am not too sure the results of the competition...Grace's school Mt. Helix did a great job. We got a quick chance as we were leaving to say hi to Grace and to congratulate her on a job well done. Then we were off to devour sushi. Great job, Grace!


Got motivated and finally built a small light tent so I can mess around with some macro photography...I had seen this tutorial online for a while now and I finally got the bug to give it a go. I bought a better light to get that box glowing. I'll have to post some examples soon.

My pumpkin....Did a little carving on the teeth. I think next year I might have to give a solid attempt at some detailed pumpkin carving...Maybe.

Zoe...My parents pup. She is the whole reason Meggy fell in love with Miniature Aussies. Technically it looks like Whiskey is considered a Toy Aussie. Lucy will be in the Miniature size department. We saw a couple of handsome Standard Aussies at the dog park...It would be funny to have all three sizes.

My babies taking a nap. Lucy is the biggest cuddler you'll ever meet. She is all about getting loved up and dishing out the kisses.

Chris and I paired up for the last golf outing. He spotted this ball that was OB and retrieved it. It definitely wasn't his...he was just doing his part for the environment.
