They anchored his tendon back to his knee cap. He was dancing last Friday and slipped on some water on the floor. And hit the floor. The tendon popped right away.
He wasn't even that juiced up on brewskis. I was home with the teenagers at the time-- reffing.
Anyways he can't shower for 5-7 days. Just PTAs. Then his immobility brace stays on for 3 weeks. Unless he showers. And then it will be adjusted with a slight bend in PT. That new brace will be 8 weeks. He has not had a wink of sleep all last night. The Vicodin amps him up. But he looks tired. His brace has a bar that digs into his calf. All sorts of complaints but I'm glad he's home and were on the road to recovery.
Oh man, good luck with everything! So much for whoopin' it up on the dance floor.

We went to Mineopa State Park by Mankato. beautiful park with the added bonus that they integrated a small bison herd there last year from the Blue Mounds state park herd. ANND 3 of them just had calves this week! so cool to see! Weather was nice except for saturday afternoon it rained on and off. I also found a small area covered with Morel mushrooms while we were hiking. I didnt pick any as i had no idea if they were for sure morels but 99% sure. also i dont know how to prepare them. another time though!
Very cool! Look like a good time! I'll have to drag the family that way sometime soon.

If you're willing to look outside local, Al's Quackery sells Call Duck hatching eggs, ducklings, and occasionally breeding pairs, hens, or drakes. His shipping rates are reasonable (He's in Maine) and he's really just a cool guy. I've gone to him with many questions from incubating to just chatting about waterfowl. He's on FB, too.
I've always been shy towards shipped eggs, but I wouldn't hesitate going through him myself.
The feed store I go to also has Call Ducks every now and then and hatching eggs. You could give them a call. Anoka Ramsey Farm & Garden. They update their inventory frequently on FB.
