Well how de dooo? How are you?
I am in knee recovery… heaven(?) over here? Imma just tell you. I’m not sure if this is better or worse than I anticipated! I think I thought I’d be up and about a lot quicker but it is taking me a hot minute to get the wind back in my sails! I think I underestimated the recovery process!
I did have a good day Tuesday. I did not want to be nervous or anxious and I ended up having the best day! I enjoyed the entire process and the excitement of knowing my knee was going to be fixed. I had really great nurses and they were fun to talk to and joke with. I even woke up while I was still in the OR, right before they wheeled me to recovery and joked with the person who wheeled me back to recovery. I can say for 100% sure that I was still under anesthesia so snippets of things I said or did keeps coming back to me but everything is a happy memory and I was either laughing or joking with someone.
I felt zero pain until Wednesday, mid morning. I’m not sure what he did to keep it dead all day but I’m grateful. Yesterday wasn’t pretty. Looking back from today, I should have given in and taken some of the prescribed pain medication but I dealt with ibuprofen all day. Today hasn’t been as bad but it is still letting me know it’s there. I can’t wait to see how much better it is tomorrow.
I have thoroughly enjoyed a few days with my mom and nephew and today, my son took off to be with me because my mom had another commitment. It’s a good think too because I dropped my crutches and was trapped in the bathroom! I’ve been told by the doc that tomorrow I can start putting weight on it so I’m happy about that!
Saturday I can remove the bandages and take a shower! WOOHOO! File that under things you never thought you’d read on this blog!
