The biggest thing that I have had going on this summer is that I had ACL reconstruction surgery at the end of May. I tore my ACL at the end of March playing soccer and needless to say, it has been a long recovery. Longer than I expected. I chose to have my reconstruction using my own patellar tendon which means I now have a cool 3 inch scar on my knee. Here is a link which explains the various types of reconstruction: http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/aclrepain/a/aclgrafts.htm
My surgeon was awesome – with a great bedside manner – and I highly recommend him, though hopefully you never have to have knee surgery! Dr. Allen not only practices at the Hospital for Special Surgery (ranked #1 for orthopedics) but is also the head team orthopedist for the New York Knicks. Pretty rockin’ credentials if you ask me.

All of this means I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus photo-wise. It’s been a hard and slow process but I am starting to get back to normal. Supposedly the full recovery takes between 6 months and a year. I am aiming for 6 months. Right now I am just glad to not have crutches or my big clunky brace. And I am starting to do some small photo shoots again which feels great.
