Today has been a hard day...and it's just getting started. I'm very happy to have one week behind me. Now 5 to go on crutches and months to go before the chance of a normal life (on the right side anyway). I'm feeling pretty down though to be honest. The first few days I was still recovering from the surgery. I am still of course, but now at times I am so frustrated that every trip to the bathroom is like a grand event. And the celebrations in PT are so small...it freaks me out that lifting my foot 10 inches off the ground is a milestone. But then again, I am on the road to a better life.
Autumn is my absolute most favorite season. The crisp cool air, the colors of the leaves, I love to drink it all in. This week I've spent most of my days on the couch with small trips out into my neighborhood. I am grieving the bike trips, hiking, etc that normally fill these days. I miss leaving on a whim to chase a new adventure. My mom is coming back next week with a wheelchair so maybe I'll be albe to get out a bit more.
On the bright side, I haven't changed a single diaper all week!! First time in almost four years. Now that is something to smile about:)
