Today was a big day.  It was the first time I left the comfy confines of my condo (aside from being shuttled to and from the surgeon’s office by my loving husbie for my post-op follow-up visit) in over two weeks.
Oh yeah - I forgot to tell y’all.  I tore my achilles playing basketball while executing a killer crossover then driving and dishing like a good point guard looking like a clumsy fool.  ULTIMATE DEBBIE DOWNER TROMBONE.

I’ve never had any type of major injury, broken bone, etc. in my life…so this has definitely been a shock to my system.  And though I’ve been perfectly content at home hopped up on some “adult candy” (i.e., pretty powerful pain-killers), this whole experience has made me really appreciate the little things.  What I would give to just walk around normally.  Take a shower without it being an ordeal.  Go to work and do my daily routine.  Play a pick-up game of hoops again.  *sigh*
Despite the boo-hoo sentiment of this post, I really am in good spirits.  The surgery went well and I’m already a bit ahead of schedule in my recovery.  My incredibly patient and understanding husbie took me to the Korean grocery store today and I had a fun time shuffling around the aisles in my huge honkin’ boot grabbing all sorts of yammy treats.  I mean, I’m confined to my crutches for about eight weeks so I might as well get fat, right?  ROROR LULZ.  *^_______^*
Otay, I’m off now to watch Tangled on the Disney channel and eat some amajing miso ramyun I bought at Super H-Mart!  Bai for now my tumblies!
