Happy Thursday, my friends! T-minus 12 days until my knee surgery and the reality of it all is finally starting to set in. My surgery referral has been official approved, I’ve done the pre-surgical consult with the nurse in the surgery center, and I’ve got all the pertinent deets taken care of.
Thing 2 will be my surgery day hero – taking me, waiting for me, and then bringing me home. Thing 1 will be coming up a couple days before and she’ll be my hero at home – making sure I have ice in my knee wrap, making sure I have food and drink so the pain meds don’t make me completely incoherent, and she’ll take me to my day 1 post-op physical therapy appointment. Then, my sailor arrives home and he’ll take over for the next week or so! I’m going to have a full house and I’m totally going to be just hanging out in the chair. haha
It’s going to be pretty great. I think. Mostly. I may or may not have a small problem with sitting still. The really not great part is going to come when Thing 1 has to leave and then my sailor has to go back to California. And then what? I’m going to be on crutches, in a brace, and non-weight bearing for 6-8 weeks. And I won’t have anybody in the house to help me do things.
These are the things that are weighing heavily on my mind:
I might have to invest in a little push-cart. I’ll put my food on it and push it a little and then crutch forward. Push it and then crutch forward. It’ll take me an hour to get to the table. haha But seriously, any advice? Have you had knee surgery and figured out how to do those things? HELP. ME.
In other news, I just found this stuff at the Kroger.
Honestly, it was the words “Angry Kettle Corn” that caught my attention. Ha! Have you ever seen this stuff? I haven’t tried it yet. I was too busy chowing on a chocolate chip cookie. #dontjudgeme I’ll let you know what I think, though!
Also, Yogi Tea is my new jam. Added these 3 to my tea collection!
That’s all the random I have for today. Okay, that may not be exactly true but some of my random is just way to random to share sometimes. haha I hope you have a fantastic day!!
As always, thanks Amanda for letting me Think Out Loud!
