I knew that surgery wouldn’t be an enjoyable vacation but this has been rougher than I prepared for mentally. Mostly I just work on keeping the pain under control and sleeping.

I also have to make sure I get up and move around to prevent blood clots so it’s harder to get steady sleep. My follow up is on the 12th in the morning and until then I pretty much have to rest.

This surgery was a lot more invasive than the knee too. My biggest accomplishment so far has been washing my hair. I am thankful I have my parents to stay with, they have helped out a lot.
