Hey guys! Sorry I've been slackin was the updates. The first week, as you all know, was quite a physical and emotional challenge. I figured id have all my breakdowns offline, then resurface lol. The hospital was hell on Earth. I had a lesser version of the Rtaller/Cooper alien poop because I knew enough to use prune juice and hot water. But the pain the first 3-4 days was debilitating.
It's post-op day 10, and the pain is almost all gone, except for on the sides of my butt and a little on my right knee. My main complaint now is that sleeping SUCKS. I sleep for like 3-4 hours if Im lucky, then struggle big time going back to sleep. I'm hoping this at least improves a little, even though I know it won't resolve completely until I stop clicking.
The one sucky thing about the Gnail compared to Precice is clicking. It's not painful...just very annoying. And I hear it gets more painful as the bone heals
Dr. G is hardcore. He makes us go to the gym and do the isokinetic center almost every day! From a physical fitness standpoint, no problem, but going off little to no sleep makes it very hard. I'm hoping my body somehow adapts to it all.
I hit my first inch in 3 more days (I'm a little over 2cm right now), shooting for 6.5-7cm. So I should be done in early Feb.
I'm a tad concerned about the cost the of all of this (all these damn taxi rides are adding up)... But I'm trying to tell myself that we make most of our money between our late 30s through our 50s, and I still have a nice amount left to buy property in the next year or two. Plus my next goal after LL is to get a new job to make more money anyway.
One day at a time!
