The time is finally here to have the surgery on my ripped ACL..I will be having my surgery next Wednesday Sept. 23. I'm totally freaked out. I think what gets me the most is that I know what is coming. I have had this done to my right knee 7 years ago. I know what it will feel like when that nerve block wears off..I know the recovery is gonna be bad. I know the pain is awful. I think I did better the first time cause I never knew what was coming. That's the bad thing about this surgery.
I only hope that it will be better this time around...they will not be using anything from me to repair this...I will be using a Cadaver. My surgeon says the recovery time will be faster and easier since he will not be grafting a ligament or tendon from my body...I sure hope he is right. My surgery will be an hour and a half and I can finally go home about 4 in the afternoon. Not too bad I guess.
I have been going nuts trying to get everything done that I need to before surgery. I want a very clean house to come to..laundry done and all that. Also, I have been preparing things for my stamp group at church. Yes, I will take some pictures of a few of the cards I made up for them to work on while I'm gone. I know I have been a very bad blogger....not sure why exactly...I really haven't been doing much crafting...maybe that is it.
OH, I also have some Christmas cards to show you. I went to an Archivers workshop over the weekend and I made four awesome cards. I have already starting working on my Christmas cards. Figured I better get them started since I'm gonna be laid up.
Ok, enough for now...I will take my pics tomorrow when I finish everything I'm doing.
Tata for now.....................
