      Thank you πŸ™‚ Yes I did a year ago! Well since I’m kind of medically schooled with my PE degree and doing my Human Movement Science masters I liked to watch the tv screen during surgery (I could see the inside of my knee on the screen). It was very interesting! The days after surgery were horrible cause of the pain. And I’ve had physiotherapy for a about a year, but I’m fully recovered now! πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much! Annaleid is a combination of Anna and leid which come from both my grandma’s names: Joanna and Aleida πŸ™‚ I never had the opportunity to meet them, because they already past away before I was born. So I really like it that my parents named my after them!
