becoming infinite

always learning. always growing. always lifting heavy things.

a week off the table: what i’ve learned since surgery.


  1. knees are super important.
  2. sports bras and bodices in general, make great tote options for small things like juice bottles, bananas, granola bars, and cell phones – a valuable thing when you have a crutch in each hand.
  3. going downstairs is easier than going up, even with crutches.
  4. never underestimate the power of DVD box sets. which would explain the recent purchase of season 5 of desperate housewives on my credit card, to be delivered tomorrow.
  5. never underestimate how wonderful your friends are.
  6. a good physical therapist is pretty freaking priceless.
  7. 90% of the times you cry will be because you’re frustrated, not because you’re in pain (this is excluding those eight hours after the nerve block wore off and you felt like your leg had been ripped off at the knee). and when your awesome PT notices this, he will use it to get you to do crazy things like be at five degrees hyperextension just six days after surgery.
  8. sitting with your leg straight is going to become your least favorite past time.
  9. you will have dreams fantasizing about sleeping on your side with your legs curled up.
  10. it gets better.

  1. This applies A LOT to any injury or disability. It’s amazing how much you learn when you’re broken, isn’t it??? It gets better, Jenny ❤ hang in there!!

  2. You’re one helluva grounded individual.

  3. Take care and get well soon !

    Cheers !
