Puttin' It Back Together

So the surgery date to repair my ACL is confirmed and it’ll be tomorrow.  I’ve been doing a bunch of pre-hab exercises and am eager to get this surgery going so that I can be on my road to recovery.  I’ve also been doing a bunch of upper-body exercises so none of what’s happened has really slowed me down.

I’m sure everything will go well because the doctors that are going to perform surgery on me are very experienced.  In fact, one of the doctors that is going to work on me tomorrow has fixed up my shoulder before.  That said, I have a great team behind me so I’m confident that I will bounce back in no time.  Plus, ACL surgeries are fairly common these days so the techniques they use for them are very advanced.

I guess the only thing I’m not looking forward to is waking up groggy after the surgery.  I remember the last time I had surgery, I ate some lunch a couple hours later and ended up throwing everything up.  My stomach couldn’t handle it because of all the anesthesia and all the medication that was inside me.

Anyway, surgery early tomorrow morning…so early that I get to wake up before the sun does!
