Yeah, I really do. I wanted to get the final chapters of the Montana Road Trip 2010 finished, but I’m having my second knee surgery this coming Wednesday, the 23rd (yikes!!!) and I’ve been busy getting ready for that. Tons of laundry (gotta have clean clothes and towels every single day till Wednesday). And then I got a cold, and yeah, they’ll still operate, but I’m hopeful I’ll be mostly well by then. I’ve got 48 hours in which to do that. I hope to have time to do one more chapter before Tuesday night; we’ll see. I think I’m going to have another early surgery; up at 4 a.m., shower with the special soap again, and be at the hospital by 5:30. More yikes.
I’m starting to get nervous and I’m not sleeping well. Tonight marks the first night when the kitties can’t sleep with me. So I have to close the door so they can’t come in. That’s really hard. I’m glad that I’ve been through this whole process before and sorta know what to expect, though this will be a total knee replacement, with an incision a good 4″ longer than my last one.
I just found out from my surgeon on Friday that the robotic da kine has a GPS unit in it, and that allows him to be far more precise than he would using just his hand and arm. Technology is amazing.
So here’s where I’ll be in about 57 hours…
