MRI results……

January 25, 2013

So I sat waiting…..staring at that computer………

………knowing the results were in there somewhere. Then Dr. Gurley entered the room. This is what he said.

“We’ll, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is….I found the problem. The bad news is….I found the problem.”

I like this guy.

I am having surgery on February 8th to repair my torn Rotator Cuff. He was completely honest and told me that one week after surgery, I will regret having surgery. Two weeks after surgery, I will regret even more that I had the surgery. Three to Four weeks after surgery, I will begin to feel better. Three months after surgery, I should be able to return to Boot Camp with limited weights, and work my way to a full recovery! Yay!

I only wish I would have pursued this many months ago.

Before my afternoon appointment, I had a full morning at home still trying to get vacation laundry done. Everything we took smelled wet? So I washed every item of clothing we took, which as usual, was way too much! 🙂

During laundry, I had a good treadmill workout.

It felt good to get a little workout in today and get back into somewhat of a routine. I did a “walking treadmill workout” from one of the blogs I follow. I like the blog and it is one that I take a lot of great info from. I love the way she writes, her dog is adorable, most of her recipes are simple and I think if we had the opportunity to meet, we’d be friends. 🙂

I did alter it a bit because my treadmill only inclines to a 10, and keeping a walking speed of 4.0 with my 24″ long legs is an almost impossible task.

I kept my pace at 3.5 and at instead of the incline at 11, 12 and 13, I replaced that with 8, 9 and 10. At the end, I did a 5 minute cool down at 3.0.

Then I did a few crunches, and by a few, I mean 3. Then I played with the dogs because while I was lying on the floor, they were both breathing heavily right in my face. Then I mustered up the energy to do 50 crunches.

Maybe tomorrow I can do more. Like say 3, then 50, then 50 more, then 3.
