Surgery's over!!!

Thank you to everybody who prayed for me! The surgery went great!
1st day back- I couldn't feel my leg, half of my right hand, and slept 3/4 of the day
Day Two- leg elevated most of the day, mom typed Friday's homework assignment and dad helped write! Slept 1/2 day
Day Three- hobble around without crutches, got out of house and went out to eat, can write and type with my right hand!
I go back to school Monday and start rehab...I should be able to walk at longest within a month but no strenuous activity for 4-6 months. So right now i have an excuse for sleeping, reading, and watching a lot of movies! Ahhh... the hard life! God has been good to me and there has been very little pain so far although i am sure more is to come...

What's wrong with this picture?

Yep! You guessed it... I have no hair!!! Our dorm is doing beard growing month where the guys all shave their faces and see who can grow the best beard by the end of the month... some guys shaved their heads too. After i said something along the lines of "i would never do shave my head anyother time in my life..." My RA already had his razor in hand and 50 guys were chanting my name. Peer pressure, being myself... call it what you want, but i couldn't let the crowd down and it was a once in a lifetime thing... so here i am... bald! Below is my roommate the first two years of college sporting the mohawk!

yep you guessed it
Next thursday February 10th is when i have surgery! I am supposed to be fully recovered in 4-6 months. That means i will have surgery on Thursday, come back to school on monday with crutches, and press on. Spring break trips are out of the schedule. On a lighter note...after doing the pushup plan, I just did 100 pushups straight for the first time ever!!! that's exciting! and Yes mom i left this picture up there since i know you love it so much!
