6 weeks and 3 days in the boot

Posted at 7:27 pm under Uncategorized

I’m down to 2 wedges in the boot. I will go to the OS 2weeks. What a difference it makes having 3 wedges gone! I actually have been walking a bit without any assistance (no crutches or walker). It feels good. I’m trying not to over do it.

I finally made it back into the gym today. I was actually a little apprehensive as this parking lot was where I did my swan dive. I rode the spin bike for about 10 minutes and it felt amazing. I just had slight resistance. I did some leg exercises and abs. My trainer was in the gym and we tried out the incumbent bike as well. I think it will be good to switch up the bikes. All in all, I was in the gym about 40 minutes. Oh, I also walked 1 lap on the track. 5 laps equal about a mile. I’ll get more laps in. I just received the Evenup in the mail. I think that will make a big difference in walking.

I’m proud of myself!

    What a doofus……it’s been 6 weeks and 3 days since my surgery. I’ve been in the boot since January 17th……….

    We’re all proud of you too! Don’t stop!

    Those 5 wedges were always excessive; ask your doctor where he got the idea, cause it’s not from the evidence! Maybe you could offer to clean his glasses? :-)

    If you follow the instructions to install the ATR Timeline Widget (on main page), it will calculate how many days it’s been so you don’t have to — and more!

    Sounds great, Vicki! Congrats on getting back to the gym. Keep up the good work. (That even up should help a lot!)
    Keep up posted!
