It’s been a few days since I last posted! Things have been a bit busy for me. I saw my podiatrist last week and got the green light to start walking very short distances (like from my car to inside the store) without crutches! I drove for the first time in months the other day and it felt good to get out whenever I wanted to.
Yesterday (Wednesday) I had another surgery done. This one was a minor one compared to my ankle/foot surgery. It was a long day.
I had a glass of water with Tylenol at 9:30am, I was instructed to not have anything past 10am and that I was going to provide a urine sample.
I checked in at 11am, which was two hours before my scheduled surgery time. My boyfriend went back to work, so I played games and listened to my audio book.
My nurse was very entertaining. She was actually the same nurse I had after my ankle surgery. She said we are twins because our birthdays were a few days apart (pretty sure she was older) and we had the same blood type and surgeries, haha.
Between 11am and 1pm, they told me that they were running behind schedule. Okay, no problem. I was starving though, last I ate was Tuesday evening at 8pm! They kept telling me another 30-45 minutes. I didn’t go in until about 4:30pm!
By the time I got back to my room, I was ready to go home. So I forced myself to stay awake and waited for my boyfriend to arrive. I was in so much pain, so we didn’t leave for another hour and half. We got out of there around 7:30pm. Stopped by our favorite taco truck and then I fell asleep while we watched Orville.
This should be it for the summer (crossing fingers). It is the last week of class and I am doing a lot better than I thought I would. I jBe a final paper and presentation due on Sunday and then I am done until August 24th! So back to work for me… I’m excited but not, lol.
