So, my surgery that I mentioned a week ago has been postponed by a week.
Sunday night, I noticed that I had a sore throat. Blah, I have a cold. It's not even a bad cold, it's one of those spring colds that I think will move through quickly. By about noon today, my sore throat was gone, and I'm left with the sniffles and sneezes, but no fever and no congestion. When I got the pre-op call today, I told them about the cold and they determined that I cannot go under general anesthesia tomorrow. I kind of wish I hadn't mentioned it, since I think I'll be feeling mostly better by tomorrow, and I really think it's not a big deal.
But, they know best, and so I went ahead and rescheduled. So, surgery will be next Wednesday. This messes up my schedule in a number of ways. For starters, it throws off my half marathon training by a week, so I'm not entirely certain how my schedule will go after the surgery. The way it was written, I should be doing 14 miles the Saturday that I'm allowed to run again, but that is probably too much and I should push it a week. This is bad because I won't be able to run with my friends :(
Work, also, is messed up because I have a release next Wednesday night and with surgery that day, I won't be able to participate. And, next Thursday, Todd leaves for 5 days for Florida to visit his parents, so I'll be doing my recovery time alone.
I'm just bummed. I had scheduled a ton of things around this and it totally sucks to be moving everything around.
