I will be transferred to a long-term  transitional care facility from

Fairview Riverside Hospital where I have been for 11 days/daze. 

I am  now at The Masonic Home in Bloomington.

My hip is deteriorating FAST

and

I am being kept still.

I feel like an ancient Grecian sculpture whose marble hip has cracked

while in a traveling exhibition.

I am being kept still by being laid into a box full of sawdust.

The local museum director is awaiting the arrival

of the Chief Conservator of the British Museum

for analysis and an integrated, comprehensive treatment plan

on how to make repairs.

The image below tells the truth.
There is a beauty to it: an Aegean Sea coral reef found as you scuba dive.

Think of  the  luminous colors, the temperature of the sea, and your body

moving through, flutter kicking, with royal blue fins.

The amazing grace and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Mark Heller,

and

Physician’s Assistant Jeff Ballard

 totally reconstructed my right knee on 27 September 2012, has

 passed the baton/the Excalibur/the Orthopedic roaring blue flame torch

to

Dr. Robert Trousdale to enter the hip that received

a THR on 26 May 1999 by Dr. Rodney H. Peterson.

#1.) My body’s unique algebra separates the textbook surgeons

from the keen skills of poetic, adventurous, innovative surgical geniuses

whose synapses are complex holograms/haikus of diverse/multiple fields

of unfolding knowledge.

There is a spectrum of surgeons:

from the exhausting check off the boxes job position

to

the  investigative, rejuvenating, passionate calling.

Technician to artist.

My  selected and welcomed surgeons are charitable explorers

whose mind and skills widen and deepen with each surgery

as  they research, brain storm and prepare for

and then

 execute/perform/improvise with  both integrity and kind humanity.

The pre-op treatment  research, planning/composing

and

the OR’s planned and improvised performances

are groundbreaking + breathtaking

 jam sessions.

Dr. Mark B. Coventry was my touchstone of artist/surgeon genius

and

he was my template of amazing grace humanity.

With the unique algebra of my body’s musculoskeletal system,

I carefully filter and, then select my dance card partner/surgeons by:

their poetic, adventurous and keen intelligence,

their improvisational skills,

their creative courage to envision a blueprint, a map, of a wilderness of a place

that they have had no previous training to enter with all of its uncertainty and risk,

their leadership capacity to work collaboratively

their uncanny ability to call out the genius within each of their colleagues with the

non-hierarchical vehicle of a roundtable;

their honesty;

their integrity

and

their humanity.

On 18 August 2014,

while Ferguson burned,

I fell and slammed directly upon my right hip made fragile by osteolysis,

and

Dr. Heller is paying his respects to his genius peers who preceded him

by keeping me still -awaiting Dr. Trousdale’s entrance into my wilderness.

Dr. Trousdale will be given only a compass and the past maps

constructed by his predecessors.

Dr. Mark B Coventry

“I think that we don’t have many people like him today,” Chao said.

“We are so goal oriented and do not treat medicine, surgery, and patient care with

integrity, charity and humanity.
