Knee surgery has been rebooked. Friday the 14th of March. Two weeks to go. I will not stress and get sick. I will not stress and get sick. I can’t wait any longer for this surgery. For whatever reason my knee has become substantially worse in the last month. I don’t know if it has to do with doing less (aka. none as I have been dying) exercise. Or if it is just general life making my knee worse. But it is sore. So sore. Sore all the time. Sore when it wasn’t 4 weeks ago. Sore when I walk the 100m to the playground with my students. Sore when I stand up from sitting at my desk for 5 minutes. So sore that it’s midnight and I’m exhausted, but the pain is radiating to what feels like all over my leg and I can’t sleep. So I’m here with an ice pack on my knee hoping that the stronger painkillers kick in soon. Tonight really reassured me that rebooking my surgery as soon as possible was 100% the right thing to do. I can’t live like this anymore.
The one thing they forgot to deliver were our individual Marvellous Creation Easter Egg treats. It really hasn’t been my day.
Good News - With every day that passes I’m feeling increasingly better.
Bad News - Went back to the doctor and even with all my tests they still have absolutely no idea what is wrong with me.
Good News - There are no more tests the doctor can do right now.
Bad News - I have increased streptosomething antibodies and we have to watch them because they can cause some rare thing that impacts my kidneys (which might be why my kidneys are so sore) so I have to have another blood test next week.
Good News - As long as I don’t get increasingly worse (please no) over the next few days I can go back to work next week.
Bad News - I got tired doing grocery shopping for 15 minutes so I think I’m going to need the next 4 days of rest.
