Here I am sitting on the couch....again after having another knee surgery. It's been a long day that started early at 3 AM when I woke up bright and early before my 4:30 AM alarm. I had to be at the hospital by 5:45 AM for a 7:00 AM surgery case. It was nice to be one of the first cases of the day because I was out before 10 AM and able to relax the rest of the day at home.
Now I am relaxing here at home and will be restarting physical therapy after I see my doctor on Tuesday. It has been a wild week starting on Monday with the start of the Blizzard of 2011 hitting the Chicagoland area with some muscle. We received 20.2 inches of snow over a 20 hour period and still attempting to dig out. It has made getting around after my surgery very tricky.
On the upside, I have started emailing race officials asking for opportunities to volunteer for this summer since I won't be able to run. I have so far received one reply and hope to hear from more.
Here's some picture from this past week including today....
