I wish I could forgo this upcoming surgery. No aspect of this surgery is fun. Nothing. Most of all I am really dreading being locked into the CPM. Gasp, I just said the "C-word!" I won't say it again. But yuuuuuuuucky. For anybody who has used one before, you know exactly what I am talking about. I am also not looking forward to the attention that comes with having surgery. I hate that all of the people in Vail know me by name. I hate making a scene in the hospital (invariably this will happen because anesthesia and me do NOT mix well). I hate having to lug my sore and swollen body to PT twice a day while in Vail. I hate having all these doctors appointments & injections. Having said all this though.....I WILL LOOOOOOVE TO HAVE MY RIGHT HIP FIXED. So that makes all the things I hate worth it!

11 Days Before: LOVE/HATE
When compared to 11 days before my last surgery, this is completely cool, calm, and collected. Last time at this time before my surgery, I still didn't even know I was having surgery! I was getting bilateral MRIs, seeing my surgeon the next day, and then ten days later was in the OR. Phew. Looking back on it, I wouldn't have changed a thing. Although I was heartbroken that I had to stop school for the time being, it was without a doubt, the right decision. Although my left is a bit off still, it is so so so so much better than before this last surgery. In my mind, coming out of a surgery not worse than going in, should be deemed a success. This last surgery was the first time this has happened! Woot woot!
