Two months ago, almost to the day, Husband and I attended a fabulous wedding up in Kennebunkport. Anyone who knows us knows that this place is more than special to us - We honeymooned there and continue to make time to get up there every summer as a tradition. It didn't really look like we were going to get up there this summer due to our schedules so we were more than excited to make it happen!
Our first day up there was a wonderful time at the beach with Husband and my parents. It was wonderful to be able to just sit, relax and take in the scenery. Can I go back now?
Anywho... The next day was the wedding and it was an absolutely wonderful day. Great food, great people and great dancing.
... ah the dancing. Well, Husband and I danced a couple of songs and had a blast before heading off to chat with some awesome people we hadn't seen in years.
Okay, fast forward to the next morning... I woke up and and got out of bed but something just didn't feel right. My hip was really painful... now we all know that I had hip problems in the past, but I thought we were home free. Oh, and this time it was my "good" hip. Yeah, you heard right, my "good" hip.
So let's fast forward again... weeks went by and pain would get better, but never quite go away. It would come and go, get worse and get better. So when I went for 2 year check up on my right hip (ironic, huh!), I told the doc what was going on and he suggested and MRI just to check on things.
So after weeks of telling myself that everything was okay, I finally gave in and had it checked. And one week later I was told I have a torn labrum... yup, again!
And today I received the date for my surgery - October 21st. So I have 33 days.
33 days to get ready for a long recovery. 33 days to get in the best shape of my life before I have to sit on my butt for 4 weeks. 33 days to get on my bike as much as possible.
At least this time I know what to expect... I know what I need to do to recover... I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel... I know I can do this.
Does that make it any easier? No, but I know it's what I need to do and it's going to happen.
So thanks for bearing with me on this... more to come!
