I am almost able to walk with no crutches. It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to get back to a somewhat normal life. I think my husband is loving it even more now that is womanly duties are about to end. The thing I most regret during this entire injury is that my husband, for my college graduation/2nd anniversary, got me a puppy and I missed her in her puppy stages. I know she is still a pup, but the first 2 months are so much fun. Training and playing. Potty training wasn’t too bad though, thank god. Anyway, I am taking things slow in getting to FWB. This week I would walk with one crutch and the past two days I would ditch both crutches when I would have to go short distances (i.e. from the couch to the kitchen, the bedroom to thebathroom). The best thing is that I don’t have to hop up the steps on one leg. I am getting pretty good at stairs and am loving it. On one of my earlier posts, I said that I have an old house where the steps are very steep. I can get upstairs without going on my butt, but am very scared to go down. I take one look when I am at the top and say WHOA this are steep and go down on my butt. I will get there though. The only thing with walking is that I get pain in my heal. Has anyone else encountered that? I am trying to walk as close to normal as I can, but with the boot, it’s kind of hard. My knee on the injured leg also hurts a little, but I think that is just because I am walking again.
Anyway, my progress is going good. I can get to 90 degrees which is great. I am getting around work pretty good (just sick of telling the story and hear…oh I heard about you..blah blah - then think to myself, why did you ask in the first place if you already knew what happened. I got injured playing softball at a game for work).
I hope you all have agreat weekend!
