upcoming surgery~

this coming thursday i will have a little outpatient surgery
on my knee to repair a torn meniscus..i had this same surgery 15yrs ago..
yikes~that road to recovery was long and drawn out..
nowadays the recovery is supposed to be short and sweet...
but ...
really ...
all i am concerned about is when i get to have my starbucks!!!

i called to check what time my surgery will be but they cannot tell me until the day before.. bs!

i warned them that i do not do well if i have to go without eating or drinking into the afternoon since i cannot eat after midnight the night before...
i am just anticipating that i will be screwed and have the surgery in the afternoon ..
late afternoon im sure......
i have no idea what i did to tear it again but it hurts like a muther!
so that is that..
have a good weekend!

hmm, i had a feeling this was coming. now be a good patient and realize you might miss your coffee. but maybe ask if you can a few sips of some if your surgery is later. i'll be thinking of you. wish i could stay with you a few days and help out.
hugs,
kecia

Just remember, the coffee would make you sick and puke- that wouldn't feel too good right after surgery!
Take good care of yourself and take it easy!

I'm sure JJ will get you your coffee as soon as you are allowed to have it! Most surgeries are in the a.m. cuz the staff want to go home on time, so think positive! We will be thinking of you (and Julie, lol!!) on Thursday. Good Luck!! Oh, and again, thanks for this weekend - we had a really good time!!

Good luck! I had ACL urgery about 10 years ago and recovery sucked. I had both knees xrayed last week, and need an MRI on my right knee. Also a suspected meniscus tear. But probably not so bad that I need surgery. Keeping my thoughts with you.

SAYYYY, _I_ want to be the Starbucks Bitch! (LOL at Beth.)

Goodness, Kim, I am so sorry to read this. I know it's no fun and certainly nothing to look forward to but there you are.

Thank you also for your sweet comment about My little creature as well as your visit. He's coming right along! And so will YOU.
Take good care and mind the doc.
x Candace

Hey, Kim - best of luck on your surgery. I've been living with a torn meniscus for about 3 years now - the worst of the pain went away eventually, and my ortho said that for me, the surgery wouldn't necessarily help. But I live without ever being able to squat or kneel....So glad you are able to get yours fixed.
