Ouch!

And since nothing new is happening in my life because I am stuck at home unable to do anything more than slowly make my way to the couch and watch TV, I have nothing new to post besides anything to do with my knee. I also just saw my moms lovely pictures of me on her blog. Greeeat. I didn't even know she took those! But that was a very painful weekend, I do not want to go through that again. And this knee brace I have now is a pain in the butt. I'm just counting down the days till I can get my new smaller brace that allows me to bend my knee, it will be like Christmas. And speaking of bending me knee, after my surgery I'm suppose to go two weeks without bending my knee and I'll tell you, my hamstrings on my right leg are extra stretches. But I'm starting to get around a lot better now without my crutches, and I just recently started going up and down the stairs by myself. WooHoo. Anyways here's a picture of my knee underneath my brace and since my knee still pretty swollen it doesn't even look like I have a knee. It looks like one straight leg. Haha.






P.S. the writing right below the bottom of my pants says "yes" with an arrow pointing to my knee cap in permanent marker so they knew which knee to fix. I've scrubbed it and it's very very slowly fading away...

Be grateful for that "yes". I hope you make a quick recovery!

ew. It looks all yellowish and sore. I am just glad it isn't my knee. Not that I am glad it is your knee. I just think I would be a much bigger baby than you. I would blog about how much it hurt everyday. So do you get to go to Disneyworld or not?

I know you are in pain, but you are seriously giving me the willies. So have you been missing a buttload of school?

Haha. I'm very grateful for that 'yes' I just don't want it on my leg anymore. When I go see my doctor he's going to think I haven't showered since the surgery.

It only really hurt bad the first 2 or 3 days after the surgery. Since then it hasn't really hurt. I'll get random bursts of pain but they go away real fast. The main problem is trying to get comfortable.

You have the willies? What about me? That's on my knee, I wake up and have to look at that everyday. My parents got picture of the actual surgery and the inside of my knee and I would not even look at them. I'll be sure to post those next though...JK. I'm to grossed out.

And I only missed Friday, the day of my surgery. I've been to school everyday since. My mom's threating me saying that I won't go to Disneyworld if I miss anymore school.
