Some medical stuff
My knee is doing better, I can walk pretty well today. Very little pain and the pain there is is more of an off balance thing from walking oddly for awhile now.

I see the specialist again Wednesday. Did the MRI last Friday. We'll see what the damage is, but it's beginning to look like it isn't anything major.

On the previous wounds. I think I have worked out a way I can still do the snare drum stuff with other musicians. I am going to put together a set of gloves with brushes attached, basically going out from the tips of my middle fingers, but with the index to ring fingers taped together, so no one finger takes all the brunt and no impact at all on either thumb. I think I can do shuffles and such quite well that way. It will be like playing the Handsonic (I need to get one of my own) or hand drums, both of which I can manage quite well. It doesn't solve full drum set playing, but that's ok, I can at least still do some drumming ... I hope. It may not work, but it's worth a try.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.

Too bad you need such a workaround but glad you've found one since you always look so happy playing drums. Virtual hug until we meet again

I haven't had a chance to actually try it yet, I probably won't till we get back from Seattle.
