A few things I'm loving

Hey everyone! Its a little bit earlier than I normally post, but, with nothing to do, I figured I'd do one! So, today while riding in the car to my doctors appointment, I realized that on my last post I had skipped a few of the fill in the blanks and never went back to change the answers from the person I got it from... whoops! :) haha.
Well, today went really well! I made it through all my class and my knee barely even bothered me. After class I headed over to the doctor and everything went well. We took some xrays and they looked great and I got my staples taken out( 12 to be exact) and as worried as I made myself( even after reading a lot about them) I barely even felt them take my staples out.I now do not have to wear my bandage and can shower regularly( without wrapping myknee) but I still have to wear my brace for a while and I have to use one cructh( dont tell, but unless I'm going out, im really not using it) lol. They just want me to so my knee doesnt buckle but I've been walking on it for quite a few days now. Now, the next step is therapy which I have my consultation on thursday and will start after that 3x a week for 5 weeks. :) yay, finally getting back to normal!

anyways! Now on to things I'm loving. Here's just a couple things!

THIS VS swimsuit. I just LOVEEEEE it. I love the colors and print and just the whole thing. Can't wait to get it, maybe :)

I really like this dress, mostly the colors! I think I will definately have to try it on to see how I like it, but loveeeeee the colors!

I reallllly love nude pumps. I am definately wanting to get a pair of these :) I think they'll look good with a lot!

until next time :)

If I were..

Hey everyone! It is kind of late and I probably should be going to bed since 4:40 is going to com pretty quick BUT I wanted to post a little something. Besides, I'm really not tired!
Well, today was my first day back at school from Spring Break and it went pretty well, I only stayed for about two and a half hours because my knee started to hurt from having it bent for so long. I am in Court Reporting so we are sitting on our machine all day and puttng my leg up on another chair is uncomfortable so I plan on taking a little but more pain medicine tomorrow and sticking through the whole day BECAUSE tomorrow after class I have to go to the doctor to get my staples taken out. yikes! I must say, I am a little nervous, but, I am actually ready to have them taken out. I hear you feel much better once theyre out and that it really doesn't hurt to have them taken out, but I'm still preparing for the worse, haha. And, actually, tonight one of my staples is kind of hurting.. I think it's ready to come out!
Let's see other than that I finally went back to my church class( I'm on my way to becoming Catholic if you didn't know) and our teachers weren't there so myself and my friend actually got all of our paperwork and assignments that we need to get done, which means we are very close to entering the church. yay! :)   more on that another time

Knee Surgery & Catching up!

WELL it has been a while since my last blog post and since I always seem to slack, I will not be making any excuses for it! I hope to at soime point in time to make this a regular thing for me, but, not sure when that will be! I think sometimes I think I have nothing interesting to post-so I don't post anything! :) lol.

To catch up on where I last left off, lets seee....
1-I met one of my goals which was to get into my 180's. WOHOO
2-I had knee/acl surgery ( boo :(  )

well, those are the biggest things!
Like a said above, I did infact have surgery. I actually had surgery on March 10, 2010. That just so happened to be my last day of class before spring break. So, I got there early in the morning around 6 to do all the pre-op things which is basically nothing but get your IV put in and make sure everything is right and I was in surgery from about 7:15ish-11ish, I'm really not sure exactly. Going into the surgery we knew that I had a right medial meniscus tear in my knee, but did not know to what extent it needed to be fixed and also my MRI's showed a potential ACL tear but they coulod not be sure until they were actually in my knee, so we prepared for both. Surgery went well and I did infact ontop of my knee tear, I had a completely torn ACL. Yep. They said it was basically just a few fibers left so they had to get some from ym hamstring and now I have an ACL :)    
Post surgery has been going pretty well. The most annoying thing is wearing the wrap and a big ol heavy brace, but other than that I have been doing good, The first day I think was the worst because after surgery I felt very neasueated the rest fot he day and couldn't keep anything down but with all the medicine I was on and the anestita, it was normal but that has been the worse part thus far. I have basically had no pain, the worst pain is when I have been laying down for long periods of time and I get up my knee hurts a lot but I think its because it is stiff. That problem should start to fade as I start therapy.
I go back to the doctor on tuesday( the second time since my surgery) and they plan to take my staples out. ( I think I couldnt 14..not sure. I'll recount before they take them out) ( I also have pictures but I figured you wouldn't want to see them :)  )  I am really nervous about getting them out but at the same time, I want them out! I will also be starting therapy this week so that is good, because I cant wait to get back to normal. All this not being able to do anything and having to wrap my knee before I shower and having this brace on and not being able to drive is driving me somewhat crazy. yes, you read that right- I am not about to drive and probably wont for another month since it was done on my right knee.
Don't tell the docor, but, I have been walking around on my knee- not a lot-don't worry, but around my room and a little but once I get downstairs. but I still take my crutches with me everywhere and once I go out the house im on them.. trying not to pish my self too much.

Other exciting things coming up are..
My Birthday which is on April 3 which also happens to be my 5th year anniversary with my baby :) :) :)
and getting those dang staples out
My friends wedding in may!

well, I just wanted to update this and kind of have it as a memory to look back on especially with my surgery. I hope to be posting soon!
