The day has finally arrived! I'm going to have my worn out horror of a knee replaced tomorrow by shiny titanium, plastic, and cement! w00t! I hope to be VERY high for most of tomorrow, and then rehab starts in earnest Friday. If I can get my hands on my phone I might make some incoherent and embarrassing posts to entertain you all.

I'm not usually nervous about surgery but for some reason I'm a little freaked out about this, so cross your fingers and look for me as soon as they let me have my phone!

To add to the torture, I have to be at the hospital at 6 a.m. Seriously? I assume they're trying to have me so sleepy they can use less sedation.

My actual X-ray and the prosthesis they'll be replacing it with.
