Not a Good Pain Day, 19 days until Surgery
So, today has not been a good day. We have had a lot of snow in the last week so I had to snowblow the driveway. I am not sure I should be doing it only 6 months post op and not quite 3 weeks pre op but it had to be done. I think another storm is rolling in so that may be where the pain is coming from. I was planning on going to Alta to ski tomorrow, but I may skip it if my hip doesn't feel better. I just did an hour on the elliptical and that actually seemed to help my hip feel better. I ams till 5 pounds from my goal weight leading into surgery so I have been working hard. Unfortunately, I have also been eating more to try to get my blood up so I can give blood again on mOnday. I don't want to be rejected and have to reschedule. Becasue of the working out, the eating hasn't had much effect except to make my weight hold steady. I have been at the same weight for almost 2 weeks now so it is frustrating. After Monday I can go back to my dieting and try to lose the last five pounds. Other than that, there is not much going on. I just counted and I only have 10 more days of work until I am out, and two of those are half days for the new year holiday. Also, one of those days I will be at Snowbird skiing so I don't know if that counts. I can't believe how fast this is all coming up.
