This Friday I am taking some much needed to time to heal and repair myself. After almost six years of pain and lack of good exercise, I’m finally having my left knee replacement. That’s right – a total knee replacement.
I’m both looking forward and feeling quite anxious about the surgery. The idea of my knee getting sawed apart is not exactly my idea of a good time. Plus, I have always heard that bone surgery is always the most painful. The pain I am not as much scared of as knowing I’ll just have to take it day-by-day. It’s the other stuff that can go wrong: Infection, blood clots, or even… lord have mercy, issues with anesthesia.
What I am looking forward to is a time-out. A time to just find balance and look inward. Reflection is always required when taking that much time off of work. We will see… we will see.
I hope to write a little more, as I will have a lot more time. But then again, who knows! I always have the best intentions, then some how, end up doing the bare minimum. I realize I will blink and the month I plan to be home will be gone!
I have a few trips I want to share here, and I promise to get those stories out very soon.
Until then, throw a few prayers my way for a healthy and successful surgery!
