Going for the Gold

My niece Britta (aka my personal nurse) took this picture of me in pre-op on Monday.  This was after they gave me the good drugs.

This morning I got up without agonizing pain … there was pain but not agonizing … before long I’ll be snowboarding and figure skating and bobsledding.  Hmmm, perhaps the combination of pain meds and Olympic coverage have blended together.  I can’t wait until I get up on that podium and they play the Lithuanian national anthem.
