One week ago (September 4th) I had total knee replacement surgery. And I mean total, because I had both of them done at the same time.
Apparently I think I am Superman or Wonder Woman, because I thought that this surgery meant I would be in the hospital for a couple of days and then my life would go back to normal. After all, when you replace a part on your car, you drive away with a better car. Immediately.
But all of the digging and cutting and tourniquet-ing that the surgeon had to do to create new knees means that none of the muscles in my leg know how to work.
And there is a lot of pain. Damn, there is a lot of pain.
So the medication and the pain are forcing me to put my entire life on hold for another week or two until I can quit taking so many meds and I can string together a lucid thought or two. And that means SHRMChat is just not on the radar tonight.
Thanks for sticking with me – and SHRMChat – during this little glitch. We’ll be back next month!
