A long road coming to an End

It has been a long time since I’ve posted anything on here. So let me just recap some issues I’ve had for nearly 6 months: First I switch insurance during the open enrollment on November 2008, which I’ve found later that my doctor and physical therapies did not take. So with that I didn’t have [...]

It has been almost 4 months since my surgery. I’m progressing wonderfully on PT.  According to my trainer my nearly 50% cure with 95% range of motion. I need 5% work on pointing my toes outward then I’ll have all my range of motion back. I can speed walk and jog slowly which is great [...]

back to work

It’s almost 3 months since that dreadful day. My doctor cleared me to go back to work with of course modified work duty, since my job requires me to left at lease 75 pounds. I don’t go back until Monday but for what its worth this time off has been a learning experience. I’ve read [...]

I walked around her office bare foot while she observe every little step I take. Then she recommended to start wearing two shoes. I [...]

one down one to go

My mom has been driving me to my PT since it began. She was surprise Wednesday when she saw me walking towards her car carry my crutches. I told her that I can walk a little bit without the use of my crutches. So when I got to my PT I had to show it [...]
