The Road to Recovery

On June 29, 2017, I went in for (what I thought would be) a follow-up appointment on the unexpected return of knee bursitis, and wound up on a table in an operating room a few hours later. I had never had any knee problems, ever, in my 12 years of running. The bursitis had originally appeared on a Sunday evening (June 11th) with no warning.  I was treated two days later (cortizone shots) and all was fine. I even ran a marathon a few days after that (Grandma's Marathon, June 17th). A few days after the marathon, the bursitis returned. My family doctor didn't think it was infectious, and prescribed a 5-day round of steroids (Prednisone), on June 22nd. When the Prednisone ran out, my knee continued to get worse...eventually landing me in surgery a couple days later (with a staph infection).

Here's the story thus far (in chronological order)......
