My ACL Tear and Recovery

The Surgery is Done

Well, I’m home now. Not much pain yet, but I’m sure it will come. Turns out my ACL was totally wrecked, so it’s a good thing I had the procedure done!

For all I’ve said about the MRI mess and Ontario health care in general, I  need to give props to the doctors, nurses and surgeons that make out health care system go. It ain’t easy, but you still always fell like you’re getting taken care of by top-notch staff.
