It's been 48 hours since I had my surgery and things are going quite well. I only have a little bit of pain (managed fine by the vicodin) and I'm already up to 100 degrees on the CPM machine. I am also walking already, too - I'm supposed to be using crutches, but I've never been good with those so I went out and bought a walker and am getting around just fine. In fact, I can walk unassisted but am being prudent and am taking it slow.
In a sense, it's kind of good that it took me 18 years to get this fixed - back then my knee would have been sliced open like a banana and I would have spent 3-4 nights in the hospital and immobilized for at least a week or so after that. So far, this has been a piece of cake.
So, the gist here is that I have a lot of free time on my hands and have done the following:
1.) Piloted my magpies to a 2-0 defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Fifa 08. 2.) Finished out all of my saved episodes of Heroes from the Fall and am starting in on the Sarah Connor episodes now. Once I'm done with those I'll start in on my Lost season 3 DVD's that Baby Johnnymac got me for Christmas. 3.) Am almost done (finally) with all of my Christmas thank you notes. 4.) Learned just how much I appreciate Mrs Johnnymac, who has been totally awesome in taking care of me. 5.) Surfed the web like a fiend and found a lot of cool stuff like this.
