and the verdict is!!

I went to the Orthopedic Surgeon today. He's very nice. I like him. Which is good, because we're going to become GREAT friends....

I have significantly torn my right ACL. Meaning, it's 50% or more torn through. He thinks that of the two clumps that make up the ACL I have torn the first one clean through, possibly the second. We opted not to do an MRI because it costs $1,000 and he knows I've torn the ACL. :P So....

...Surgery is 3 weeks from today.

I am nervous. I have NEVER had surgery, NEVER been under ANY kind of general anesthesia (yes, even for wisdome teeth...i had other drugs) and have never REALLY been to a hospital since I was born.

The GOOD news is, I have an awesome boyfriend who came with me, held my hand, told me it would be okay and then took me to Great Harvest for lunch. How I love him....

Now what to do before I become immobile in 3 weeks??

I just left a very long comment on your facebook. Don't fret, it's really not bad. Good luck!

Stock up on books, movies, snacks, and... umm.. ice cream?

I'm allergic to sleeping gas used for surgeries because it erases my short term memory for a few weeks afterward. Serious. Maybe the same will happen to you! Then you can have lots of excuses and fun!
