Surgey Went Well

I only had a couple minor meltdowns once we got to the hospital. Everyone was very understanding about it after hearing my medical history. My own personal nurse (and BFF), Lisa, took care of me all day yesterday. Thanks girl. I love you! My mom is here today. My leg is wrapped, elevated and being iced. Having trouble getting around on crutches though. All the numbing anesthesia wore off about 6am so I'm feeling it today. The vicodin takes the edge off... but I can't keep my eyes open. Thanks for all the prayers. I'll be back in a few days. :)

PS. Happy 41 Month LID-versary to me today!

What was I thinking to let the doctor schedule this surgery for Friday the 13th? Don't they know how bad my luck has been when it comes to this kind of thing?! I really don't need any added superstitions.

I have to be at the hospital in 6 hours. So why am I still on the computer? One word.... denial! I can say "I'm having surgery" all I want. Because they're just words falling outta my mouth. There's no meaning behind them as far as I'm concerned. Because I refuse to let my head process what those words signify. I started to a little bit yesterday when I was discussing things with my Lieutenant. And I started to hyperventilate a little. That PTSD just has a mind of it's own and pops up at the most inconvenient times. Yeah... it wasn't good. So I decided to go back to my happy, disconnected place until I absolutely have to face things. Which will be in about 6 hours! Oh crap... make that 5 hours and 50 minutes. But it's okay. I can handle it. I have valium. LOL!

So please say a few prayers for me that all goes well. And that I don't freak out too bad. It's just a minor little outpatient thing to fix some torn cartilage in my knee. I don't think the doctor can kill me doing that, right? (insert nervous laugh here)

Trick or Treat '09

Two skeletons, a cheerleader, a scarecrow, a vampire and one tired little froggy who hadn't had a nap.
The night was made even more fun with Braeden joining us this year. My brother and Kristy split off a little early to head back to the house cuz he was tired of walking. We were in my sister's neighborhood so they didn't know the way. They asked her how to get back home. Braeden piped up out of nowhere that they should "follow the yellow brick road". Guess he took his costume very seriously and was fully in character. It was pretty damn funny!

Right about 8pm as we were nearing the T's house, I looked up and saw a shooting star fall from the sky. I quickly made a wish. Let's just say my wish involved next Halloween and who I take trick-or-treating. ;)
