Over two decades ago, I named a role playing character I used to maneuver back in AOL’s Free-form Gaming Forum IronWynch. She was an experimental cyborg assembled by the ITC (from my dreams mythos). They wanted to see if the hardware and software would work, and after confirming that it did, just basically released her into the wild.
She was the first character I played on the internet, and I had a lot of fun with her. I had no idea that she was, in her way, a bit of a prophecy.
As of Thursday, June 13, 2019, I have a synthetic right knee. The other one may not need a total replacement, but it will be “high tech”. There is a new procedure using a frame and stem cells to restore knees that aren’t totally gone. I don’t yet know what exactly they’re going to do, but I’m sure the surgeon examined it a bit. When I woke up, I had the circulation machines on both legs.
In a couple of months, I hope to be dancing again.
