Surgery tomorrow. Thank you so much for all the prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery! I appreciate all of your comments so much and they really do mean a lot to me 🙂
The anesthesiologist called me this morning bright and early to get my medical history and things. I realized how fast this surgery was scheduled and I’m just hoping for the best outcome.
Since I was up early, I decided to get my last workout in before my surgery. It always seems the last workout has to mean something because you never know what will happen in the future. It’s bittersweet. And, naturally, I felt like I needed to do something because I won’t be active for the next… Well, who knows. ED recovery at its finest.
I did each exercise 40 seconds on, 20 seconds rest and the chest flies, tricep dips, and push-ups with a stability ball. If you have never tried dips on a stability ball, I highly recommend it. It works your core hard. My arms are shaking as I type, so I guess it was a good workout!
I decided to paint my nails the other day for the first time since 2008. Yeap, since 2008 I had either fake nails or a gel manicure. I am in love with Essie’s Butler Please nail polish. It’s like a neon periwinkle. It was relaxing to paint my nails and I forgot why I stopped painting them…
More chips than a Dorito’s bag. My patience needs a gel manicure.
A list of things I’m worried about after surgery:
-Nothing is fixed.
-My ED comes on strong and I stop eating because (God forbid) I’m laying around a lot.
-My other knee gets screwed up from overcompensating. I’ve been paranoid this week because it feels weird. I’m driving my mom and myself nuts.
-They amputate my knee by accident.
-Elmo gets mad at me because I’ll be sitting around all the time. I get jealous easily so he better be by my side 24/7. I’ll just carry treats in my pocket.
I’m glad I’m back to blogging because at least I can read about all of you and write about things going on with my recovery. EEEEK, I’m so nervous. My mom and I are tooting up a storm from nerves. TMI? Sorrrrrry!
🙂 Have a terrific Tuesday!
Wish me luck tomorrow! I’ll need it!
