3 Months

February 11, 2014 | |

Today is my 3 month anniversary of surgery.  It’s sometimes hard to believe that it’s only been 3 months, but that’s kind of the nature of major life changes, right?

Not a lot to update physically. My limp is mostly gone and I can walk normally most of the time. Going downstairs is still slow, but improving. The AT is still a little stiff in the morning, but it’s nothing a few quick ROM exercises can’t loosen up. At PT, we’re up to doing weighted squats and lunges, heel raises with heel below toes, and my physical therapist thinks I’ll be able to start jogging at the end of the month (I’m really, really ready for that!), a few weeks ahead of what we’d originally thought.

My goal to ski at least one run this season in early April — and continuing my 30-year streak of skiing every season — is on track.

I also got to ride my bike outside for the first time since ATR! It was cold but totally worth it. I’m looking forward to bike commuting again (once it warms up a little more).

All of that, combined will still not having any major setbacks, feels pretty good.

Best wishes to your own recoveries, and thanks for your continued support!

    Really nice to see this. I’m real early here so it’s nice to know that 3 months can proceed rather quickly in this ordeal.
