One more day until my arthroscopic hip surgery. The time has gone by too fast and I am definitely very nervous for tomorrow. I am scared about the surgery itself and I am worried about the recovery process.
I have been a bit stressed, overly sensitive, and emotional lately. I’m pretty sure that I’m driving Danny a little bit crazy already.
I talked to the nurse at the surgery center yesterday to go over all the pre-surgery instructions. It’s all basic information – no eating or drinking after midnight tonight, no contacts, metal, or jewelry in the operating room, wear comfortable clothes, and make sure I have someone to drive me home after surgery.
I have to be at the surgery center at 10:00 am tomorrow and my surgery is at 11:30 am. The surgery last two hours and fifteen minutes and recovery is two hours and thirty minutes. That means we’ll be leaving Chicago right during rush hour to come home. I am a bit nervous about sitting in the car so long but hopefully I’ll be okay.
The hospital will give me crutches to take home and I have physical therapy scheduled for Friday afternoon. Today my continuous passive motion (CPM) machine is being delivered so I have to use after surgery. I will also have a hip brace and an ice machine. Fun times ahead, my friends. Fun times.

Today’s workout at the gym was my last workout for quite a while. It’s sad.
One of my super sweet gym friends, Jessica, brought me card and a Whole Foods gift card for sushi!!
Wasn’t that so sweet?! I told her that I owe her a best friend necklace
Breakfast before the gym this morning was Ezekiel toast with peanut butter, egg whites, and cherries. I am trying to stick to eating healthy.
Look what I found at my local grocery store:
Chobani watermelon Greek yogurt!! It was the last one on the shelf and of course, I had to buy it. I haven’t tried it yet, but I plan on eating it this afternoon! Sounds like it’ll be good although watermelon yogurt sounds kind of different…
Today will be spent getting things ready for tomorrow – making sure I have everything I need, getting final plans set for the kids, cleaning up a little bit, maybe subscribing to Netflix. Does anyone have Netflix? Is it worth it? We would still keep our regular cable channels since Danny needs the sports channels so I just wondered if it was worth it to add on along with our regular cable.
Have a wonderful day and I will check in when I’m feeling better! Also, thanks to everyone for your kind words and support. I really appreciate it.
