Its all about the small steps….

September 20th, 2012

Its all about the small steps right in this recovery journey right? So last night was the first time I felt comfortable and confident sleeping without the cam boot on.  I’m allowed to now, but haven’t felt confident about the strength of my ankle/leg, because I stretch out in bed and was afraid I’d flex my foot too much etc.  But all was good!

Then because I’m also allowed to shower without boot now, I had my first shower standing up (unaided) and it felt good!

Tomorrow I’m going to venture into the world of driving again…can’t wait!! I’m sure I’ve been driving my family mad with all the lifts they’ve had to give me to get to work and elsewhere…so its nice to feel independently mobile again.  Have a docs clearance to do so too, so should be kosher with insurance etc.

Its been a good week this week! May it continue…

Happy healing everyone! :-)

ps- I like this saying "its possible to move a mountain, but moving small stones away every day"

    Go for the drive. I drove for the first time yesterday, after 6 weeks. I do feel quite liberated. Freedom to move myself is a beautiful thing. Enjoy your first drive…I did!

    I’m new here to Emmq and hope I can keep the same attitude you seems to have. Congratulations on your small steps and hope I can be as patient and confident as you feel.
