It’s been a month since my surgery and I am ready to walk again. The cast comes off tomorrow and I believe I get the BOOT. I hope I can get rid of my crutches as well even though I am really good on my crutches. Mother nature loves to dump more snow on the ground, and I have not slipped or fallen on any ice yet. I have the best support system and my husband is a pro at being Mr Mom! Both my kids are getting used to mommy on her crutches, but it will be a surprise once mommy can walk and get to them easier when they misbehave because my son knows that I am not too fast so he stays out of my grasp when he wants to.
This has been more trying to my patience as I am not a “sitter”, but my relationship with my mother, husband and children have all benefitted from this as I appreciate them all in new ways. I am ready for the hard work ahead, but I will never forget these lessons I have learned.
