For those who know me well, fashion is very important to me which is one reason why I was so thrilled that I was allowed to wear these socks during knee surgery on Friday. Not only did Kermit the Frog add just the right pop of color to my drab johnny but he also added a little bit of whimsy to the situation and the nurses agreed by exclaiming, "Cute socks!" and "Where did you get them?" as I was wheeled to the surgery table. So, naturally, we had a nice conversation about the joys of shopping at Target which almost made me forget that surgery was literally around the corner.
Another thing that was not allowed in surgery was my wristwatch so the nurses were kind enough to give me these lovely bracelets as replacement. Pretty, right?
After surgery I was in a lot of pain but not in enough pain to make me forget to put my mukluk slipper boots on and to snap a photo for my blogger, Facebook, and other close friends to see. My knee is the focus here, really it is! LOL
By the time I got home on Saturday evening the pain increased so I was happy to lie down with my peas, mukluks boots, my furry on-call doctor, Buster, and a whole lot of ibuprofen!
I'm happy to report that as of this morning (which is also Daisy's two month hip surgery anniversary date) I'm not hobbling around as much and am walking around much better than I was yesterday (and so isn't Daisy)!
