    Thinking of you, hope all goes well, remember to keep taking those pain pills, don't be brave, stay ahead of the pain, and REST

    Hi, just a quick update before the pain meds kick in. Surgery went well, there wasn't as much to repair as the Dr thought. I was home by 3 this afternoon:)

    From my knee down is being kept numb by a thingy until Sunday. I found out I can at least sit up as long as the foot stays elevated.

    So I'm going to pass out now, lol. Thank you all so for the well wishes, the mean so much to me:)

    I glad things went well. Take it easy! (easy by definition is "not hard or difficult; requiring no great labor or effort" Does not include housework, cleaning stalls, or running kids around. Also does not include activities like riding and 4 wheeling which while both fun are usually not conducive to healing.)

    Made it through the night without any problems. It actually didn't hurt at all.....until this morning. All of the sudden it was excuciating So I took every pain med I could take, increased my nerve block, and it still hurts. Not quite as bad now, but it's still hurting like an S.O.B.

    On the bright side, I can finally move my toes. I never thought being able to move my toes would be such a big thing, lol. Now if I could just get the pain under control again Another good thing, the pain meds aren't upsetting my stomach at ALL, so I can eat regular food

    Hubby has been AMAZING!!! We've even had a few laughs. We've been on a few vacations, where one of us wasn't 100% so we would end up just chilling and watching Dirty Jobs or Myth Busters. Well, we don't have cable at home anymore so we don't get to watch them anymore. I signed up for Netflix, while I can't move around. So last night we vegged together and watched Dirty Jobs & Myth busters together.

    Right now I'm watching the Buck documentary, lol.

    Told you to stay ahead with your pain meds Now do as you are told, no bravery here, take the darn things on a regular schedule for a few days.

    That is quite the bandage you have on there, when you get released from the doctors bandages, polo wraps work really well if you need some support.

    GH, I was being good with my meds!!!! Honest. I wasn't in any real pain when I took my scheduled amt. I didn't want to take more than I needed. But it just suddenly started hurting really bad about 2 hours after I took the drugs. I'm at max capacity for drugs now until 3.

    I really am TRYING to behave!!!

    I would be ordering the family around to get you special treats & stuff. Take advantage of this time.
