Almost no Open Source Days in Copenhagen for me!
Sunday I was in my garden burning some small wood. When I crouched to pick op a piece op paper and got up again, I got a pain shock in my knee and couldn't stretch it any more.
As I used to play a lot of basket and already had some issues with my knees that always disappeared in an hour or two I decided to wait it out. That didn't help, so my wife took me to the ER.
At the ER they informed me that I needed surgery but they suggested to wait until Monday to get it confirmed by the surgeon. I really liked that idea (and hoped it wouldn't come to that) so Monday morning I was at the Hospital.
I didn't like what he said though... I needed the surgery... He did give me a heads up and told me that if it was only the meniscus it wouldn't be that bad...
This did impose a possible problem. My talk @ Open Source Days in Copenhagen would be an impossible thing to do :/
This morning I had the surgery... I had a really rough time getting awake no idea why. Last time I was put under I woke up and after an hour I was ready to go home... Now it took me more than 4 hours (recovery room included) to be awake. It's almost midnight here and I never thought I would be awake like this (read can't sleep).
About the knee: Part of the meniscus was torn off and blocked the joint. But good news is that it was only a block and that there was no damage to the joint nor the ligaments. This means that by next week Thursday I should be enough recovered (especially as I can walk on the leg already).
There were a few remaining problems...
- I can't drive to Denmark (not allowed): solution --> Raf Nijskens will bring me
- Need someone to help me with the luggage etc: solution --> Raf Nijskens will help me!
- Extra hotel room and ticket to the event: solution --> OSD will take up the bill!
So as you can see Open Source Days organisation and Raf really helped me out to make sure I can still present Djagios at the event. I should mention that the company I work for Inuits sponsors the 2 days for me and Raf Nijskens, Which is a nice and cool effort!
