The Pikachu cake was lemon flavoured. And it was delicious.

This is the last of the aspirin I've been taking to prevent blood clots, which means I've been home for six weeks.

Next week I'm officially back at work, which will be another shock to the system.

So I went and cast my vote yesterday which is the first day of Advance Voting. And in the process gained even more empathy for those with mobility difficulties.

I found a conveniently nearby location for me from the map of Advance Voting locations:
Auckland University,
AUSA Club Space,
The Quad,
Alfred Street

So far, so simple. And then the adventures began.

My knee is metal(-ish)

I got to see my post-surgery knee x-rays for the first time. I figured they'd have needed to incorporate quite a bit of scaffolding to hold the pieces in place. After all, I managed to break my patella into five pieces. And yes, there it is.

The left picture is the front-on view, the right picture is the side-on view. (The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the left view is upside down. I didn't realise until after I put the pictures together & I can't be arsed fixing it.) In the side-on view, a gap is still evident; the pieces haven't joined up properly yet.

But the good news is that I am now allowed to put weight on my left leg. That's really helped with mobility & overall self-confidence, but we're still in the early months of the recovery process. And overall it is "good news"; the healing is on-track.
