On Tuesday I had surgery on my heel.
It was a little more hectic than expected.
The surgery was supposed to be pretty simple. It was supposed to last 2 hours. It ended up lasting 5 hours.
The x-rays showed that my heel bone was in 4 pieces. IN reality it was in 25 pieces. Ouch. The doc said it was one of the worst foot injuries he had ever seen.... and it was one of the more complicated surgeries he had performed.
I was under general anastesthia for the surgery. They also gave me a pain block in my leg to numb the pain for a little while after I woke up. It was only supposed to last for about 5 hours, but it lasted over 24 hours! I was on medication through an IV and I also had narcotics at the push of a button. I had to sleep at the hospital for 2 nights... i was miserable.
Im home again and in a lot of pain.
Its not easy to stay positive at all times when you are bed-ridden. Im trying my best to see the good in this situation, but it keeps raining on all of the plans i had for the next few months.
Everything will work out. I'm not sure when and im not sure how, but it will be okay.
hooked up to a bunch of stuff at the hospital
NARCOTICS at the press of a button!
