Knee Update: Home From Surgery

This is a Horrible, HORRIBLE pain.

It's a different kind of pain than anything I have experienced before, and it is truly awful. Really, truly, awful.

I am having trouble sleeping. Unlike a sudeen sport-induced injury, this surgical pain does not come with the dulling edge of shock.

I am hurting in a way I've never hurt before. It's awful. Really trully awful.


...

I am home again after a very successful arthroscopic surgery. No miniscus repair, which means I should be on the quicker path to healing. Tonight will be the most painful night, and if I were able, I would be asleep right no just to avoid the pain. Unfortunately, I already slept most of the day, and I am having a little difficulty actually staying asleep now.

Pain pain pain pain pain.

....

Oh! so I got home from the hospital, and there was this **HUGE** immense balloon bouquet flanking my driveway! Gorgeous!! *really* made me smile. :) I can't find a note, so I am puzzled as to which one of you absolutely darling angels was so thoughtful and inventive! I do consider myself truly fortunate to have such wonderful Blog friends that it really could have been any of you! :) .... Very appreciated. Absolutely awesome.

....

And Zann!! You are *such* a sweetie! The treasures you sent are truly divine--a mere reflection of your sparkling and richly caring soul. :) Thank you!

pain pain pain pain pain. .. but the benadryl I took might help me sleep, so I'm going to turn off the light and try again.

Hugs, all.

    I feel for you, I truly do. I remember when my friend had her knee done, she said the first day was by far the worst. You should get your Project Spectrum yarn today, if you haven't received it already. I hope you like it, and take good care of yourself!

    {{{{{{Peacock}}}}}}} I am holding you in Big Light.
    I cannot believe that one of those boxes in the amazing Tower of Boxes below was for me! It arrived today as a lovely unexpected surprise.

    You have already sent me so much. Thank you, thank you!

    All those teas smell divine - if I don't like any as a beverage, it will make great potpourri! Awhile back I got a tea-maker, but it's been too hot to make a whole pot, so I haven't used it yet. I am going to make the first pot from one of the teas you sent me.

    Healing blessings,
    Zann

    Ben said the same as Penny this morning - that you'd be in alot of pain, but that today would be the worst - when I wondered how the operation went. So you'll be better soon and we can start meeting at the gym again :-)

    Hugs, Susan

    Peacock: Ouch, I feel for you and if I could I would take some of that pain away. Not all of it cuz I wouldn't be able to deal with it much better, but some of it anyway. Tomorrow it will start to be better. Yes, today will be the very worst. Hugs, SP8

    Poor, poor Peacock! Cyber hugs. Didn't you receive any post-op pain killers? If not then shame on the doctors. There is no reason for people to be in unneccessary agony. None. I hope you got some sleep.
