Therapy consists of morning and evening exercises plus six hours on an ARTROMOT-K4 machine that flexes the knee between -10 and 100 degrees, cycling every thirty seconds. A VASCUTHERM, the nurses called it a blue coolade machine, circulates 49 degree F water through a jacket Kathy wears around her knee. During our spare time, we're watching McLeod's Daughters which is an Australian tv series about a ranch family. I hesitate calling it a western because I think it was filmed in southeastern Australia. There are eight years of episodes available from Netflix. We'll probably see them all.
Recently, while lj-surfing, I ran across an entry by windrider_09 about an emergency evacuation in Antarctica. Some old memories bubbled to the surface. That led to some googling and internet surfing about Antarctica. In the process, I ran across an interesting journal with a number of nice photos of 'the ice'.
