My Dad got his leg cut off today!

    Tue, 2010-02-02 12:11 — Scotty

    My Dad has to have both his knees replaced. Full replacement with artificial replacement knees. They cut the leg both above and bellow the knee. Throw the knee away and put a fake one in.  They did the first knee today.

    I hope i didnt inherit his knees.

    You've nailed an interesting point! 
    The advances in surgical technology and techniques has taken huge leaps, for better or worse due to the treatment of our war wounded. As an Army vet, I think that it is great that we are putting the resources to work to take advantage of our technology.
    Most importantly, I hope that your pop is doing well Scotty!! 
    Do you have a status update?

    I doubt your Dad has abused/worn out his body as much as you however.  Don't you have a laundry list of injuries and hardware before you even started Jiu Jitsu?
