FWB - at least I think

October 19, 2010

Had a very positive last couple of days. Admitedly, after the first 2 days of PWB, everything hurt…except my achilles. The bottom of my foot was sore, my calf was killing me, my toes hurt and it was pretty depressing. It didn’t seem like walking in 2 shoes in 3 weeks was a remote possibility.

I’ll tell you though, for those who are getting close to PWB… Before you get depressed, give it a little time as things quickly improve. The last two days, I guess as I reintroduced my leg to the rest of my body, things improved rapidly. I know there are many ups and downs to come along with a lot of work, but it was very encouraging to see that the body responds and things start
to work and move again. The last 2 days have been much better, not much pain and I have been able to walk some with no crutches. Have been using at various times and depending on what I am doing, 2 crutches, 1 crutch and walking without. I suppose that qualifies me to update my status to FWB. Keep the faith!

    The same goes for getting into two shoes…the first few days were horrible, but a week on, the freedom is amazing and its SO much easier.

    It’s even better than “many ups and down to come”, Drew. With luck, you can skip the “downs”! Lots of “ups”, punctuated by maybe a plateau or two.
