Second Place Ain’t that Bad!

Last night, I attended The Mobbies Award event to see if B’s Knee’s Blog won the best Baltimore blog in the health/wellness category. I didn’t come in first place, but my blog did take second! It also came in third under the best personal blog category! I think that’s AWESOME!!! Win or lose, I love writing this blog and helping people stay positive no matter what life throws at them 🙂

Let Me Catch You Up..

So, where do I begin. I thought my gallbladder surgery went well…until I had a severe allergic reaction to the adhesives the surgeon used. Now THAT is a story in itself, but I will give you the shorter version. Long story short, my body did NOT like the bandaids and steri strips my surgeon used and my stomach FLIPPED out and broke out in hives, blisters, itchy, gooey and a disgusting mess. Eight bags of ice later, I spent 6 hours in the ER to get some professional help. Today is the first day I have felt like a ‘normal’ person. The rash was so gross and it spread and took over the whole entire front of my body. I couldn’t sleep due to the itchiness and pain. Now, I have scabing in a bandaid form over the 4 incisions that the surgeon made. Thank the lord that I can wear real clothes and be a working part of society again.

OH and on top of that, I had strep throat!

*Note to self: I AM allergic to adhesives…I AM allergic to adhesives…


Oh The Memories…

This past Thursday I was back in the hospital for another procedure, but NOT for my knee’s. I had to get my gallbladder removed because I had gallstones, which brought me the worst pain (worst then all 3 ACL surgeries combined). Oh the memories of getting blood work, sitting in the prep room with the hospital gown and laying on the table being put under anesthesia. This all brought back many memories. Now I’m on day 3 of recovery, and it’s weird being able to get up and walk around. It’s weird that it’s not my legs that are in pain and swollen! Today, I am feeling much better and less uncomfortable and in pain. Always staying positive 🙂
