Let me just say how beautiful it has been the last few days! Absolutely gorgeous. There’s something about this time of year (probably the sunny weather ) I just love. Although I am on the mend from surgery, it’s so nice to have the windows open with fresh air in the house!
For some reason, one of my favorite things about the spring/summer is falling asleep with the windows open. I love listening to the sounds of the crickets and silence outside at night. It’s just so relaxing and makes me want to jump into bed just to lay there. Am I the only one?
Needless to say, I cannot wait for the consistent warmer weather. I hope this summer is better than the last where I am not hobbling around for months. When I compare this surgery to my surgery last April, this one is a breeze. Maybe it was a good thing I had to go through one rough surgery to make this rehab easier. The bright side of things is key.
For the most part, I have been just rehabing and trying to take care of my knee. Last Thursday, I got my stitches out and my knee drained of fluid. Unfortunately, the flood was bloody but my surgeon said it’s normal for the first extracting after surgery. Now, I have heard this so many times before and things weren’t normal so I am just keeping my fingers crossed for this one!
I did ask for an MRI for my left knee (“good knee”) because it has been bothering me for over a year now. I don’t know if it’s from compensating but it’s good to be able to keep an eye on it. My surgeon probably things I am a loon, but I don’t want to go months and suddenly something goes terribly wrong with it. Maybe I’m paranoid; maybe not.
I am looking into accelerated nursing careers as well as sit down jobs with mathematics. If my knee gets better, I really would love to work in a hospital which is weird because I got panic attacks about two years ago just walking into one. There’s something about making a difference in people’s lives. Aside from teaching, anything in the medical field is really rewarding.
Thank you all for your kind words and advice! Now, I am off to shower and head to a local candy shop to get Easter candy with my mom.
Have a great weekend!
