Recovery: Slow Going, but I'll Get There

February 14, 2017

My last doctor went well.  I was scared because I saw the x-rays the day before and not knowing what I was looking at or what it should like, I jumped automatically to the worst possible conclusion. 


Luckily, I freaked myself out for no reason.  My doctor said everything is still in place and looking good to start physical therapy. 


Since that appointment, I’ve had a couple of appointments now and I keep getting more exercises to work my core and start strengthening my arms and legs.  I keep telling myself someday these workouts will be my warm ups.


I’ve also started trying to get some extra walking in.  I’m trying for 3,000 steps a day.  I know that’s not much, but when I was at about 500 last month I’ll take it as a good sign of improvement.  I’m still using my braces and the bone stimulator.  I don’t wasn’t the bone growth to stop progress.


I’ve been starting to feel like myself.  I can stay awake during the day.  Nights are still tough as I wake up in strange positions, but that’ll get better too.  I’m just happy to be up and able to do things.  Sadly, I still can’t go anywhere without my fiancé, but again I’ll get there.  I just need to keep going.


Thanks for everyone who has continued to support me and help me out when I need it.  You guys rock.  Please keep pushing me forward.
