Random thoughts

My knee is doing so much better. I’m only in physical therapy once a week now! The scar is ugly, but I suppose that’s a small price to pay for a working knee. I’m still adjusting to having my brace off and being able to walk. In a few week I might be able to actually work out!

I should have gone to the higher education rally in salt Lake. It starts in 10 minutes. I hadtime to get ready and go this morning, but I haven’t been sleeping well and my knee hurts. Lame excuses, I know, and I feel bad about them but not bad enough to translate into action. Hopefully the rally goes well. Unfortunately even if it does go well, scholarships at USU will be nil next year. Maybe I’ll have to reconsider a few things.

Now how is this fair?

After my surgery I got a prescription for lortab 7.5/500mg. It works pretty well on the pain but unfortunately it has been giving me these unbelievably painful headaches. So all of yesterday I had to decide between crippling knee pain and a headache I couldn’t stand. Real fair.

I got a prescription of percoset today. I’m hoping that this will work without the same side effects because without medicine the pain is basically unbearable. I had physical therapy again today and I did fairly well. I’m hoping my muscle doesn’t atrophy too much more because it’s going to take a lot of time to build it back up.

It’s snowing! It looks absolutely beautiful outside. I’m so glad that we’ll get a white Christmas this year. I won’t be able to do anything in the snow, but it’s a good feeling to have it around. I’ve almost got my mom convinced to drive me around tonight to look at Christmas lights. I hope it works out, although the roads are fairly slick today. It gets pretty lonely being tuck in my room most of the time, but getting out for therapy helped a little.

12 and counting.

It’s strange, I’m less scared today than I have been the last couple of weeks. Maybe part of it is all the reassurance I’ve been getting. I have some seriously great people around me. John and Jerry came over, even though they didn’t have to. They’re so great to my family, and me. My family is just great. It’s been really nice having everyone around me. Maybe being home for the semester isn’t going to be so bad. Maybe this really is what I was supposed to do, despite all the doubt I’ve been going through.  Maybe that’s what faith is really about.

Tomorrow’s the day. I’ll have pictures as soon as I can take them. Posting might take longer since I won’t have my laptop, but they’ll find there way here eventually.

Under the 48 hour mark.

Man, I’m really going to miss my job. Well, maybe not the actual job so much, but definitely the people. It’s funny, I’ve only worked there for a few months and we all agreed that it felt like so much longer. It’s hard to find people you can really be yourself around and it’s really hard to leave that.

We finally got some snow today. It’s almost mid-December and we haven’t really had snow at all. I might get around to taking some pictures. We practiced for the church choir this morning and I had to carry the whole section since only a couple of altos showed up. I really hope that more show up for the other practices and actual performance. Best Year Ever is on today. It’s amazing how normal my life is when I’m kind of freaking out inside. Maybe after the next 48 hours normal will be hard to come by.

Well I guess I’m headed out to go grocery shopping, I’d better appreciate normal while I can have it.
