I went to the doc the morning to get fitted for my new knee brace. This makes the 3rd one of these I have had to pleasure of getting. Everyone is a little bit different and since my leg keeps changing they cannot use the same one.
The guy that does the fitting was really nice and actually made me laugh quite a bit while I was there. He started the entire conversation off with "Wow! Your knee is really jacked up!" I was laughing before I could control myself. I mean come on, who says that!
Well we got the whole fitting process done and then came the important part...what color brace? I went through the book, the pink was cute but I already had that one, I don't want anything normal like black or silver. I don't have a team to match anymore so that was not a question...and nothing with butterflies or tie dye, that's too much even for me. I was looking at green, yellow, and maybe red. I think he was in a contest to sell a certain color brace because he asked me did I watch the National Championship game between Auburn and Oregon. Well yes I did, War damn Eagle! He said he thought the brace that Oregon wore, the neon yellow was pretty cool. He had the right person there today because one thing about me, I don't want to be like anyone else so what better way to stand out than yellow. So I agreed. He did a little fist pump and said he was calling all the reps in the area to let them know he sold the yellow one. (He assured me there was no contest but I don't know that I believe that) It made him so happy and I will look bad a#@ running down the street in a yellow brace!
Its the only photo I could find with the knee brace.
He made my morning very much enjoyable.
I hope the rest of my day goes as well as the morning. I have a full day of work ahead of me then...workout. It does have to be modified but I am going to do whatever I can do...and do it to the best of my ability without overdoing it. Ill let you know how it goes.
