I surely cannot believe how fast the time is going by. In 26 days, God willing of coarse, I will be in surgery. I feel like I'm going to be the Bionic woman. Truthfully I am so excited.
Yesterday I attended my "Total Joint Education Class". I was the only one there that is having both knees replaced at the same time.
Last year at this time I was to afraid to go through with this surgery but today I am excited. I know how much work will be involved and the pain levels I hear are supposedly pretty high.
But I am still excited as all get out! I learned quite a bit at the class. Although about half of it I read online. Folks I am in for quite a bit of discomfort and probably some depression and possibly a bit of
"I give up" from this surgery.
But all I can keep thinking about is all of the things that I'll be able to do once again that I've been missing out on over the last four years. What really bothers me the most sometimes is that I'm 53 not 83 and I spend more time sitting than moving. But that is going to end soon!
Today I went to my family physician for my wellness check up. He said that I looked good to go but I have to have some more blood drawn and a urine test next week. They did an EKG right there in the office and his nurse, who I've known for several years said to me after the test, "No matter what anyone says Diana, you're normal!".
I told her that I'd let my husband know and thanked her! On my way out my doctor said, "You're in for a rough road.", but I already knew that. Don't care, just want to get it done with.
I've been very busy this week and I don't want to bore anyone to tears so I will cut this short. If I have time tomorrow, I will post some of the details about the surgery, post op and what I have to look forward to once I get home.
It's a lot. But God's right here with me and knows how much fun I've been missing. And by "fun" I mean being able to just get a job and take care of my family!!!
I'd be grateful for that much.
