My Surgery

So this Wednesday we will head back to Iowa City, but this time won't be quite as exciting as the proposal. I will have my first surgery, which will lengthen my left heel cord. The second surgery will be in December, and do the same for my right.

Basically my heel cords are too short for the rest of my leg. While attempting to stand flat on the ground in a normal posture, my heels are raised off the ground. Obviously this creates discomfort, and throws off my balance, etc..

The first surgery was originally scheduled for today...so I was originally expecting to be watching Monday Night Football, while in a pain pill stupor, but due to scheduling conflicts with the anesthesiologist, the surgery was pushed back to Wednesday.

I've never had a real surgery, so I am a bit nervous, but I think the overall benefit of the surgery will be worth it.


...I will provide all the fun details during the recovery. I have the rest of the week off, and will update during the week.

Hopefully won't look this nerdy :)
