I'm in the hospital now and will likely be discharged either Thursday or Friday.
I didn't receive a nerve block during surgery, and consequently I woke up crying so hard I couldn't speak, and my heart rate could not be controlled. My poor nurse kept knocking me out with morphine until the anesthesiologist could come by and give me a femoral nerve block. He put in a catheter at my nerve at the hip, which provides continuous numbing medicine to the front of my leg. The other half still hurts like hell.
My scar on the left knee is a bit smaller than the other one on my right. My right scar was actually reopened so my doctor could remove my screws from the last surgery.
This is looking to be another sleepless and painful night. The nurse just gave me some prett powerful meds so I'm struggling to type this correctly. Thank hoodness for autocorrect vision blurry Pictures and updates to come later.
Love you all
