- Bought some things I'll be needing in the hospital, i.e, a fun, black, satin nightshirt and some really cute slippers, non-slip socks and boxer shorts. Who knew surgery shopping could be so fun?
- Talked with a physical therapist who is familiar with PAO (one of eight I talked to). I still need to set up a time to meet with her and check out the facilities before I decide she's the one for me.
- Found a back-up doctor in Montana who is familiar with PAO and is willing to help with my follow-up care.
- Made more definite arrangements with my mom and dad about my recovery with them. (On a side note, I just want to thank both my sister and my parents, who almost seemed to be fighting over who was going to take care of me after the surgery. Aren't I special!)
- Got my pre-op paperwork from Dr. Mayo's office.
- Got my CT torsional scheduled for 12:30 p.m. April 15. (This will tell Dr. Mayo if my femur is straight ... please be straight, please be straight ... or if I'm going to need a femoral osteotomy along with the PAO.)
Either way, I hope this story ends with a "happily ever after."
