I was super blessed to get a last-minute appointment for my knee surgery. I called Monday, and I had it done bright n’ early this morning. I haven’t run for 2 weeks and I am itching to get better. The knee was popping and locking (and not in a cool break-dancing kind of way) more than ever this week, so I know it was the right thing to do.
I’m at home recovering now and was treated to the dreamiest Vicadin-induced nap early this afternoon. Now I’m just on ibuprofen (I still can’t figure out how the nurse talked me into Vicadin, but I was still happy and sleepy from the anesthetic!) and feeling kinda achy and bored, but otherwise great.
When I came around in the recovery room, the CNA told me “You’re blessed.” I said “Huh?” He said “God is blessing you.” And I said “Yeah, He is. Thanks!” That was pretty cool.
I think I’m gonna wear these super hot compression stockings for my sister’s wedding. They will totally go with the dress, right sis?
I’m headed for PT Monday if all goes well and will be taking it really easy the next couple days. I am so bored I am inventing things to do! I was super blessed when my buddy Jay came by to see how things went and I also got to chat with Kim, Mom, and my sis today. Thanks guys for helping me stay sane!
I should be back on the bike by Monday, and swimming by a week from Friday. Running will be about a month away, but with PT and lots of time on the bike, my doc thinks the Adventure Race will be no problem. I can’t wait!
