Dr. Bob was greatly amused by this. (I needed to see him to get my prescriptions moved to the new mail-order pharmacy anyway, so I figured he'd enjoy the report.)
He does, however, think that the leg looks much better. Keeping it that way once I go off the Cipro is the hard part, so the surgery looks to be a good idea.
And the evening of the day following the surgery, daisy_knotwise, Katie, and I set off for Texas to visit family and attend Fencon. (Which is why the surgery is set for next Wednesday.)
