Out of Commission

Well, in case you have not already heard, I’m taking a break from photography for a while, and most of life. Yesterday morning I had surgery to reconstruct my right ACL in my knee. 

I should be asleep, but due to excruciating pain in my knee, I can’t sleep. I don’t cry much from pain, but I have multiple times since I woke up from my surgery.

My wake up greeting was vomiting into my oxygen mask, and at which point, they sedated me again to allow me to rest more I guess. This experience has definitely been more painful than the surgery I had back in November of 08 to scope out the ACL and just remove it.

The cool thing so far was the nerve block they put in that make most of my leg numb. I could touch my skin through the brace and it was like touching someone else’s skin.

I thought I would be okay by myself today while Cliff is at work, but I am SO thankful that my friend Diedra is coming over now, plus my mom is coming in this afternoon.  It’s just nice to have your “mommy” around when you aren’t feeling good.
