Week 10

I think my scar looks awesome. Probably won't see my actual knee for 9 more months though, I have to live with the swelling until then.

Overdue Update: Summer

It's been a while since I have posted on my blog, but for good reason. Since I started walking 100% independently, I've been able to work and volunteer and go to concerts, the city, college tours and more fun things with friends that I wasn't able to do before.

Being very busy makes my recovery seem like it's going a lot slower however - I look back, and I think "It's only been two months since my surgery?" When it feels like a year. But nonetheless, I am recovering on pace. I can ride a bike at any position with extra resistance, I can swim, and I can do any machine there is at the gym.

Just yesterday I reached 141° for ROM (my goal is 145° by the 12th..but I expect to exceed that). Then in about a week and a half I will start hopping/jumping which means I will be able to shoot again!! (Although I have been doing free throws/in the lane)

I've continued to talk to college coaches, which just gets me more nervous than excited for my upcoming senior season. What if I'm a lot worse? What if I can't get my shooting range back as fast? What if I just don't meet their expectations in general? I just hate playing the "what if" game, and that's all that runs through my head when I think about this upcoming year.
