Looks like Karoshi-man's operation is going to be postponed for a while. Apparently his surgeon got hit with an allergic reaction today, and he's in no condition to do it. Frustrating, but as it turns out, K-man got to talk with his doctor about a problem with his hand that's been making it difficult to use the crutches.
As we suspected, he has a "trigger finger" -- a tendon that tightens painfully, drawing the finger into a crook, like it's holding the trigger of a gun. So they were able to give him a cortizone shot and discuss a future operation to correct that, too.
Don't know when they'll reschedule the operation, but it should be weeks rather than months.
Current mood: hopeful.
