135.8 yesterday, 139.0 today…From Surgery To Bunco

I survived foot surgery yesterday to repair my broken bone.

I’m sexy and I know it.

Lisa took me to my surgery and waited for me during it. You have to bring a photographer with you wherever you go right? You know, to take pictures of you coming out of general anesthesia.

Even sexier. I tried to make up for it after I woke up and started to feel a bit better.

What did Lisa say after this picture….oh yeah…”Wham. Bam. Back to Glam.” :)

So here’s my new x-ray:

The black thing running up my foot on the left side is actually 3 pins that are holding my bones in place. The pins will come out in about 4 weeks. Fun!

When I was feeling up to it, the nurses wheeled me to Lisa’s car and then we went through the Taco Bell drive thru because a bean and cheese burrito were all I could think about. I mean, it was probably close to 3:30 at that point and I hadn’t eaten since the night before. The burrito was bomb.

I came home to rest for a bit and decided that I felt well enough to go to Bunco. Yes, I’m legitimately nuts. It’s ok…everyone knows it.

Nurse Lisa picked me up and away we went to Kat’s house for a good time.

I put my foot up, had a few sips of wine and enjoyed some delicious appetizers that Kat had prepared.

Cheese ravioli skewers with pesto, meatballs and figs on goat cheese crostinis. Loved everything!

Do you know what I also enjoyed??

Mini cream puffs!

Yes, I almost finished this plate of them.  I came home, popped a pain pill and called it a night.

I expected to be in pain this morning but it wasn’t too bad. I ate some crackers, took another pain pill just in case and relaxed in front of the TV.

Nurse Lisa came over late with a Starbucks coffee and heated up the leftovers from last night that Kat lovingly sent home with me. Thank you girls!

Don’t I have the best friends ever!?!

I spent the entire day with my foot elevated in bed. I have been catching up my DVR shows and it has been quite incredible I have to admit. :)

When was the last day you stayed in bed all day?
