8 Weeks ago today, 8/8/08: the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, the Cubs were playing good baseball, and I went under the knife. My how time flies when you’re having fun?
I’ve been out of the cast and attending PT for 2 weeks now. I am still on crutches - PWB, but gaining strength and flexibility on the right leg. I hope to ditch the crutches in the next week or so. It’s strange to not have a boot or anything on the leg…I just wear a sock.
I went to the Cubs playoff game Wednesday night, and wore a ski sock and a shoe for the first time. It felt good overall….but major swelling by the time I got home that night. I’m sure the draft Old Styles had something to do with it.
PT is coming along well….driving more often now. It’s my hope that a week from now, the Cubs will still be playing baseball - and I’ll be off the crutches.
Final thought: kudos to all the wives, husbands, significant others, friends, grandparents, cats and dogs who put up with all of us who are recovering from the P.I.T.A. injury. Thank you.
