Since mobility is out of the picture for the time being, I've been filling my time other ways.
I've watched all 14 episodes of Firefly.
And Serenity, the Firefly movie
I've surfed the web, seeking out information on knee injuries and recovery times
I've spent way too much time of Facebook
I've caught up on email
I've talked on the phone
I've watched all the back episodes of shows I like but can't watch around the kids
I've watched an endless loop of Scooby Doo with the boys when they want to snuggle with me
I've petted the dogs because they think I'm finally smart enough to figure out it's a good day when you don't ever leave the bed
Today I had phone meetings
Covered work email
Caught up on many items on my work to do list
I've been brought meals in bed
I've been brought pain meds in bed
I've been brought a stash of trashy magazines, chocolate and homemade blackberry sorbet-right to my bed.
But honestly, I'm so over this. I want to be up and around. Walking. Driving. Cooking. I'm a terrible patient.
But tomorrow I'll find out what the future holds. I went to the orthopedic surgeon today, he referred me for an MRI which I got this afternoon. He'll let me know what it says tomorrow. I don't think my options are all that great. One involves surgery, the other no surgery but a long recovery. And I'm sure there are other options that we didn't discuss. I still think he may find a badger in there, but Mr. Dog keeps telling me that's nuts. But at least finding out will involve a nice drive to the doctor's office to break up my day in bed.
