The thing holding my leg together.


Isn't he pretty? Yes he is PURPLE and kinda sparkly. He is filling in for my ACL, since it is now a goner, and he takes pressure of my Meniscus too.

Like everything I own he needed a name. He is now family ... seeing as he cost as much as 2 puppies. Not quite as cuddly and fuzzy, however.

He was affectionately coined "Bar-Knee" by a very witty friend of mine :) due to his purple colour and the fact that he is made up of bars to hold my knee together. PERFECT!

I also think "Er-Knee" could work, seeing as I have a Boler named "Burt" ... Burt and Ernie (Sesame Street, get it??), and it's funny that my brace is worth more than Burt the Boler ...



It makes me happy when I look at him, I almost want to break out in song ....

I love you, you love me
We're a great big family.
With a great big hug
and a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too!

Sorry for putting this song in your head, but I've been suffering with it since "Bar-Knee" was named ... now it's your turn.

Perhaps he needs a new name?? Perhaps he is girl?

This made me laugh so hard... Bar-Knee, perfect. I did not read the lyrics though as I *do not* want that song in my head all day :)

Bar-Knee is an awesome name, LOL. That's the neatest looking brace I've seen. Oh, and BTW, you suck. I had that dumb tune in my head all night long. ;)
