No More Shower Chair!! : )

April 13th, 2013

That’s right…..I took my first shower, in over two months now… standing up without the assistance of the shower chair! I’ve now loaned it out to another in need of the chair. Was a God-send while using it, but so happy I’m strong enough to STAND!!

I saw that KOBE BRYANT is probably going to join our ATR “club”. Boy, we feel his pain, right??? Hey Kobe, your peeps should join my peeps here on this amazing ATR Blog, to help you cope with this process you’re going to be going through on your recovery!! Come on, come on over …………

…wow, been a while since I’ve been on here….

7 weeks since surgery

5+ weeks in daz boot….while walking, sitting, sleeping : (

Today’s date:  April 3, 2013

I must admit…..I’m happy that I can walk while in daz boot, happy to air the leg out when relaxing or in the SHOWER (still on shower chair) ;  really enjoy PT 3 times a week,  but back to a bit of depression with all of this!!!  I live in Bullhead City, AZ and our temps are reaching over 90* now, and I’m still unable to get both legs into the pool to cool off.  Hope that next week, I’ll get the all clear, and be able to begin some water aerobics once again.  Heck, just to float on a noodle would be heavenly!     I have added some photos, wonder if they will show up.

Continued healing to all of us.

We have a Western Caribbean Cruise that we are to set sail on….May 11th, 2013 (only 12 weeks post op) …. praying I’ll do fine! Prepared to bring daz boot on the cruise : (
