I begin Physical Therapy this afternoon to start my right knee back to being a willing partner to the left one.
Yesterday was my visit with the Orthopedic Surgeon and I liked his demeanor very much. I also like that we have common ground as his young daughter rides horses!

He wants me to get this knee back to complete flexibility again before we seriously discuss surgery for the ACL. I'm all for that.
So, PT for 2 weeks and another appointment for him to check my progress. Sounds good to me.
And because I'm a sucker for punishment, I still look at horses, and dream. THIS is exactly the kind of horse I'll be looking for whenever I return to the saddle:
