Disneyland at 9 weeks

Filed under: Uncategorized — curlygirl at 1:39 am on Thursday, August 16, 2012

it was my birthday over the weekend so we decided on a trip to Disneyland. Although I am FWB and walking very well in my boot we thought it wise to hire a wheelchair whilst we were there so I did not have to walk for 12 or more hours straight. That proved to be a wise move. We had a great day, I walked a bit , then got a ride in my chair. The added bonus was that we got to use the wheelchair/ injury entrance so managed to shorten the wait on some of the rides. We stayed until the park closed, parade, fireworks,tons of rides big and small . it was a day out that I really
needed. I walked a fair amount too and my tendon held out pretty
well with very minimal swelling. Felt a little stiff the next day but
fine now.It wad nice to spend time with my husband and three
children and have some fun! It had been too long since I had felt like laughing out loud.

I love theme parks so I can relate to how much people enjoy such family days out so to be able to do it at 9weeks with a good action plan, sounds cool :)

I understand completely!
I had a chance to go to New Hampshire for the weekend. Having fun with the family was great.

So great to hear you had a good time! My family was in Disneyland about two weeks ago. I was at week 10 and also rented an electric scooter. While a bit embarrassed at first, it was so worth it! I can totally relate to feeling normal and having a great time! Felt so great!!

Brilliant move! My family lives down in LA & were saying I should come out but I didn’t want to try walking all over creation. Forgot about being bumped up in the lines! Happy Birthday!

I went to Seaworld last week which was 8 week post ATR. I also rented wheelchair and enjoyed bypassing the lines! I was so glad that I went! We’ve taken our kids every summer for past 5 years and I almost let this injury break our family tradition!
