two days to go!

April 6th, 2013 by evahsmum

So, I’m sitting here resting a little bit before I take on the final clean through of my house and the rest of my day.  I want to have everything in shape by the end of the day today so that tomorrow I can relax and enjoy my last day pre-op with family and friends.

And, yes… I’m getting a little nervous at this point and have a little anxiety about the whole thing. I have a lot of peace though, knowing that it’s all in God’s hands and there will be so many people praying for me during and after surgery.  I am looking forward to being on a road to recovery, not just existing and trying to make it through until surgery anymore.

On the technical side… I have quite extensive atrophy of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles bilaterally (right more than left) and my quads are even weak from being casted and trying to be off my feet so much. My brother in law is coming over today to raise my very low couch for me, so I can get out of it after surgery with less risk of losing my balance and falling.  I’ve been going cast-less around the house the last few weeks and have done a few short outings (that don’t involve any walking around) with out them as well. It’s… different.  I’m slightly concerned about the skin on my right foot going into surgery, but time will tell how it will handle all this. (I sliced up the bottom of my right foot very bad in my teens and the skin hasn’t been good ever since).

I will try to post once more before surgery, but if I don’t… I’ll see you all on the other side! :)

    I will be praying for you for your surgery! You will be fine! It is actually quite easy and painless. The atrophy is a bear, but it does come back, so they say. I look ridiculous….very lopsided because the my atrophied leg is like a stick. Just know it is short-term. Enjoy the downtime and don’t waste it! It’s a gift…really.
    God bless you…stay in touch.
