No, not of driving in a car. I've gotten past that.<br><br>
No, not of getting in and out of the bathtub on my own and by myself.<br>
I've gotten past that.<br><br>
No, not even about bending my knee, strenghtening all of the muscles and pushing the tightness out of the tendons.<br>
I've gotten past that.<br><br>
But I'm feeling like a newborn baby about arranging to get 3 sutures that have not dissolved and risen to the surface of my knee taken out. They are under the skin so I know it'll probably be a simple procedure... But the very thought of cutting over such a tender and vulnerable spot makes me literally shake (as I am doing now).<br><br><img alt="sad.gif" src="">

i'm in waaaaaaaaaahhmbulance mode! <img alt="sad.gif" src="">
yeah, i know i'm being a baby. i'm very cognizant of it... too much cuz i'm feeling awful weak to be this worried/anticipatory. it's one of those days. i hope i'm braver tomorrow cuz i have to make the appt.<br><br>
p.s. i love the ice cream idea.
oh, i'm so glad i didn't have to get staples removed! my external sutures stung like a muther when they were removed... but i got through it...<br><br>
these aren't the external sutures... these are internal sutures that were used to close the knee after it was gaped wide open (knee cap off) so they could drill through the femur bone to insert the titanium rod. the whole idea, the imagery i get... blahick!
