Do You See the "Butt-erfly" ?


Thank you for the many heartfelt inquiries about my health and well being. Being the Cannonball, a fall here and there is of little consequence. Unfortunately, the knee I've been nursing and complaining about for the past 6-8 weeks has proven my undoing. I'm scheduled for arthroscopic surgery next Wed. at 3:30 p.m. with Dr. Burton Elrod ( Titans team doc...jealous Doug ? ) at Baptist Hospital.

Three to four weeks post op I should be able to spin once again if all goes well. Wish me luck and keep the beer cold !

Sorry to hear about the knee, hope everything goes as planned. Elrod is who I would want if I had to have knee surgery. I gave anesthesia for many of his patients back when I was at Baptist and he always did a good job. Let us know if there’s anything we can do. Good luck and have a speedy recovery.

Way TOO much information. I thought it was the image of the Madonna in a jelly roll. I was half right.

Glad to hear it's only 3-4 weeks! Follow Dr's orders and you'll be as good as new. Looking forward to spinning with you again!

I don't see a butterfly but I can see the moon.

Get well soon.

Elrod did my knee back in '95. It is now perfectly normal. I hope your result is as good. His estimate of my recovery time was too optimisitic mostly because I'm a wimp when it comes to pain.

I am jealous that you are being worked on by someone who is stroking Kerry Collins body parts. I spotted a Hema Toma. It will get bigger and blacker before it gets better. Good luck with the surgery.
