Cole's knee

For those that don't remember or know, Cole had knee surgery a year ago. While at work yesterday his knee gave out on him, he actually dislocated yet again. When he called to tell me what happened I packed a bag and took off to my parents. It was nice to be so close and able to get to him within 3 hours. Anyway he went to the ER and they put this massive knee brace on him, the tech in the ER put the brace on over his pants and told him not to take it off until seeing the ortho doctor. Of course when it was time to go to bed he had his pants own, not so good for sleeping and around 3:00 this morning we took it off to get his pants off. We went to see the ortho doc this afternoon, his knee is too swollen for the doctor to know exactly what he did to it and he will have to wait until next week for an MRI because of the swelling. Looks like I'll get to hang out with him for a few more days since he won't be working.
The ortho doc gave him a much better brace and he can take it off as long as he's not moving around. I told him he had a bionic leg, looks like it anyway!

That new brace looks high tech! I hope his knee is not damaged to badly and that he's up and back to his work and school in no time! I bet you like visiting with him while he's recovering.

Bummer! Hope he feels better soon! BTW, I like his name (wink, wink) and actually considered that as a name for my future son, but realized that naming my child Cole Cole really wouldn't be kind. But, love the name! ;)
