So I had my surgery yesterday. I did everything they asked me to in terms of my prehab, just doing some quad exercises and trying to keep the leg strong, working with Greek a little bit and always icing it.
Yesterday everything went well, as far as I can tell. I feel good. My leg’s still kind of numb, so I’m just taking a lot of antibiotics and pain killers. I’m just trying to heal up. Right now I’m just groggy and tired, so forgive me if this blog is a little short.
The plan now is to rehab at the hospital for like 10 days, just some light rehab. I’ll stay laid up, keep some ice on the knee and that’s pretty much it. I do get to travel back and forth to home, which is good, I just go back to the hospital for the rehab every day.
I just want to say to everyone showing me support: Thanks a lot. I appreciate it, and you know I’ll be back next year, ready to get going in a hurry.
I’ve been able to keep up with the rest of the running backs since I’ve been gone, and I am most definitely impressed. They’re stepping up big. Especially Peyton, with me and him being rookies and being able to contribute and help the team win, that’s what we play for — to get the W. Peyton is doing big things and I’m happy the rookie class is stepping up like that, all over the field.
I’m focused on rehabbing right now, but I know Thanksgiving is coming up right around the corner. What are all of you doing for the holidays? My mom’s coming in town and she will cook up some home-cooked food. We do the whole nine. It’s not a question of what we cook on Thanksgiving, it’s more like — what do we not cook?
I can’t wait to just grub and spend some time with my mom and my brother.
I just want to say thanks again to everyone, and I’ll check in with you next Thursday while I’m getting ready to eat.
