I swear to god, the fabric that Santino is using is the exact same fabric that Austin Scarlett used last season on the dress he was eliminated with.

Can anyone back me up on this? I can't look..commercial break is over! Ahh!

edit : I WAS RIGHT!!

I'm looking for input from you guys.

I guess a few of you do know that I had surgery on my knee. If not, yeah, I did. September 23rd, to be exact. It's over two months later, and I'm still not recovered from it. This is what I have. It blows.

I actually have another surgery scheduled this Thursday, and this is going to be done (from the linked website) : The traditional treatment approach for arthrofibrotic knees that did not loosen up with aggressive stretching and exercise in physical therapy has been to place the patient under anesthesia and then literally break up and tear the restrictive, internal scar tissue within the joint by forcing the knee to fully bend and straighten. The surgeon accomplishes this by way of strenuous, manual joint manipulation. The procedure therefore came to be known as a manipulation under anesthesia, or "M.U.A.", and is still in common use. In cases of severely frozen knees, extremely stressful manipulation forces may be required to break up the scar tissue and get the joint moving again. This poses a risk to a patient who has not been able to bear much weight on their leg for quite some time, because the femur and tibia may have lost a considerable amount of bone mineral (calcium phosphate), thus weakening them. This increases the chance of an inadvertent femoral or tibial fracture occurring at the time of the joint manipulation.

My family and I both think it sounds scary, especially since there's a a risk of possibly undoing what the original surgery did, or breaking my leg. <------ You read that right.

However, I'm just so sick of not being able to function like a normal person. I haven't driven for almost 3 months, and if I want to go anywhere, I have to depend on someone else to do it. Needless to say, I have been spending A LOT of time alone in my place for the past two months.

A possible alternative to that is having something arthroscopic done, but there's also some issues with that, as well.

Guh. I need a new knee for Christmas. Or, if your lifestyle is so inclined, I know I'm not all that religious, but please pray for me that this will clear up sometime soon. Or just send me good thoughts or any advice you may have.
Thanks.

I am about to start my third week of physical therapy, after having
surgery on my right knee. Apparently, I am not progressing as quickly
as my doctor had hoped I was, and my pt told me that I really need to
get my leg bending, otherwise, they might have to resort to
more 'drastic' methods. It sounded kind of scary when she told
me...what could they possibly be?
I would like to work really hard at my sessions, but the thing is,
it's just excruciating for me. It really is. Maybe I'm just a wuss,
but they're thinking something might not be going right for me. I
don't know. All I know is that I have been taking darvocet and 800 mg
of ibuprofen for pain, but it does nothing for me. I'm allergic to
codeine, so I can't take vicodin - what is comparable to that that
could possibly alleviate my pain?

Ooooh, sweet. My brother, my mom and I now have our tickets to go see Wicked at the Fox.

We're excited. :)

I just saw Alton Brown make cake icing with avocados. :/

I'll have to try it, though.
