Boot off today! Now What?

Published by cams under Recovery

A bit late to this blogging bit due to being side-tracked by loads of American television shows I’ve missed over the past 5 years.  However, after 8 weeks in the boot due to non-operative surgery, freedom feels great, given the return of warmer weather.  Despite the free healthcare in Copenhagen, it would still be great to have a bit more instruction.  I was sent home with a pamphlet with instructions on toe-pointing to bide my time as I await for physical therapy.  Due to inactivity for 8 weeks, my additional complication is the tightening or shortening of the tendons in my knee, which makes attempted walking without the crutches to be challenging.  Anyone who might have a suggestion on what to do about the knee and returning to normal gait would be greatly appreciated.

Knit One Purl Two

Published by cams under Recovery

So, tired of crossword puzzles, and can only see so much on internet television and Netflix.  Decided to invade my knitting stash that I haven’t breathed on for ages and dig up all of those patterns I saved over the years during the time when I was too pre-occupied with writing my thesis and journal articles.  Since being bound to the chair, I have knitted pieces for a fair isle vest (Louisa Harding), a cable sweater, a hat, and most of an angora short sleeve top.  The hardest part is putting all of the pieces together and sewing them up, because I like to press all of my pieces before I sew them together.  I’ll save that for when I can stand on two feet.
