The nurse had a good laugh when she asked how I got here and if my ride was waiting in the lobby for me and I said, "no, I walked"
THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS...they must have worked because surgery went great! I feel so blessed to be working at Loma Linda & times like this even makes me more grateful. What other hospital would your co-workers & physicians come to pray with you in pre-op? It was really comforting especially since Andy couldn't be there. By the way he's been amazing despite having 5 tests this week; running home between class to cook, stay on top of the dishes (keep in mind we have no dishwasher), learning to do ponytails, tie my shoes & keeping me laughing about all this : )
Now the big question??? Would you run a full marathon 4 days after wrist surgery? I still have 2 legs & 1 perfect arm! The surgeon didn't oppose, however I am still at risk of non-union and avascular necrosis & I only get 1 left wrist! I was 100% sure I would do it before surgery but now I'm 50/50. I'm not an elite runner obviously, I simply do it because I like pushing myself beyond what I think I can handle & I love the mental side of marathons. Plus I'm on some good drugs so I may not even feel leg pain either! haha I just don't want something bad to happen in the future because I didn't allow myself to recover properly...been there done that!
So....tell me what would you do?
Post-Op anesthesia not quite worn off...very attractive! honestly I thought I was smiling! : )
