Brace Yourself

I had my final pre-op appointment with my orthopedic surgeon today. I'm happy to report that everything went fine and everyone is very confident that I'll do well. I'm nervous, which I know is natural, but... well, the fact that it's natural to be nervous doesn't actually make me any less nervous. I think my nerves are exhausting me at this point. I got my brace today, too, and I'm actually wearing it at the moment. I don't actually need to wear it until after the surgery, but I figured I'd wear it for a little while tonight just so I can get used to how it'll feel to move around with it. It's basically a supersized corset, but it's not terribly uncomfortable.

Other than that, not too much else to report today. Except that the spinal fellow who is assisting my surgeon is completely and totally cute. Kind of distractingly so... but that's okay with me. He's young, too, so that's a fun little distraction. I hope I don't say anything dumb when I'm under anesthesia.

Don't worry - its ok to be nervous. I think I told you but my uncle had the same surgery a couple years ago with the same back brace and he is doing great now. P.S. I want a full report if you say anything inappropriate while you're under the influence.

Could you come up with some sort of cheesy pick up line and then blame it (sort of ) on the anesthesia later? :) Might get a date out of all this hehe. Thinking of you!
