Last Hurrah..Pre-Surgery

March 7th, 2009
Well I had been trapped on bed rest for 2 weeks so I decided that before I go off to surgery I needed a night out w/ my friends to take my mind off my hip and get out of the house for a bit.

I am not a big fan of going out on crutches..people constantly staring at you trying to figure out what is wrong, HEAVY DOORS, long distances walking can be hard on your hip and arms, but I decided I would not worry about all that and just enjoy being out of the house. I went out to the Beehive in Boston (great place highly recommend it especially for someone on crutches.) Even though we had reservations there was about a 20 minute wait so the manager got me a chair to be comfortable and then when our table was ready they gave me my own bodyguard who escorted me to to the private elevator out back and took me downstairs to our table. As we were walking to the table he pretty much made everyone get out of my way..seriously I kind of felt like a Rockstar..ok so maybe going out on crutches really isn't that bad ;) My bodyguard even offered to pick me up and carry me to the table, but I didn't think that was a good plan, but I appreciated the offer. After dinner when we were ready to go my bodyguard came back and made sure I was returned safely back to the front door..I really got the royal treatment. Thank you to the Beehive and my guys rock!
Ps. On a side note it is interesting that when you are on crutches how many people come up to you wanting to share their stories about their injuries, or the time they spent on's like mini support groups..I think everyone just likes to be heard and let you know that they have been there they understand...which is nice.
P.P.S. Even though you might be in a lot of pain it is good to make yourself do things to take your mind off of it ..Thank you so much to my friends for making me go out that you guys..xox
