OK I officially don't like knee surgery! This was supposed to be nice and easy, a fews days rest and then up and around taking it easy! So why is it day 3 and I am sitting here in pain, drugged with pain meds that make me sleepy my foot up and on ice!!! I don't like this one bit. Ok the whining is out, I know I am actually doing ok, I had unrealistic expectations, plus my 4 year old just landed on top of it which is why it hurts so much right this minute, it was doing a little better.

I wish I could just cuddle up and take a nap, but of course responsibilities don't end just because I don't feel better. Kids still have to do school, or as much as I can get them to do when they know I can't get up, Jeremy still has to work, at least thank goodness it is at home, so even with overtime tonight he is here if an emergency does happen. I am about to just give up on school and turn on the tv just so I can take a nap.

Does walking to the bathroom on crutches count as a work out? My arms sure feel like it should!

    Pobrecita! emoticon (Poor thing!) You're still probably much better off with the surgery than without it. It's a healing pain-not a getting worse pain-which is what *would* have happened had you gone w/o the surgery.

    Prayers reaching out to you. My brother-in-law had his knee replacement in June and he too was frustrated because he was not able to run a marathon immediately. He has had an amazing recovery and it back up to nearly 110%. You will be there soon too.
