Is the Past Prologue?
I’m still in recovery for the 2nd Knee Replacement Surgery – and anxious for “it” to be all over. Done. Fini.
So please excuse and typos or poorly constructed sentences, etc. It’s those pain meds.
I did the first knee April 18th and then, when in Week 6 of Recovery, I felt good enough to schedule the 2nd knee for July 11th – 12 weeks after the first.
And I am so glad that I’ve planned a very light load for this 2nd recovery – because one thing I’m learning over and over again – is that the road to recovery isn’t predictable based on one experience. Some things are the same – but many are different. How much pain? When? Where? What feels better and much better and when was that?
Even though I had scheduled the time to be Totally Worthless before slowly evolving to Simply Worthless – so that I could manage expectations of myself and of my significant others – I wanted to steal back some of that downtime to get something on my long Things To Do List done.
That’s just how I am.
But reality has spoken, and given me this question to ponder:
How Many Rodeos Does It Take
If The First Isn’t Sufficient to Demystify What Rodeos Are All About?
And … I’ve already arrived at an answer.
