I’ve been thinking a lot about my grandchildren lately. I’ve not even met our little Jake yet. Hopefully, Al and I will get to make a trip there in October for both their birthdays (Oct 2nd and Oct 7th). Justin just had a little girl this year name Aryia. Emily is growing up so fast and loves to talk to me on the phone. Here are some of the latest photos of them, which always make me smile.
Good evening my friends.
My surgery on February 10th to get my screws removed from my ankle went well. I was told I could walk with my walker and in my boot. When I first tried to step down on the foot I was surprised it hurt so very much and that I couldn’t even come close to stepping completely on the foot. Discouragement set in. Now, almost 2 weeks later, I have seen a lot of progress. I’m walking faster with my walker but still not stepping completely down on my foot. I tried to take a step with my cane and it was a no-go for now. 🙁 I have an appointment on February 23rd to get my stitches out. I will then get a referral for PT. Hopefully Workman’s Comp will give me enough sessions to start walking on my own again.
The day is almost here when I get my screws out of my ankle and get out of the wheelchair. It’s been a long 3 months not stepping on my right foot. I still have PT ahead of me but at least I’ll finally be able to step on my right foot again. Workman’s Comp finally said okay to start light duty after I get my screws removed on February 10th. I’ve been fighting with them for the last month. Giving up the fight was not an option. It will probably be another week after I start stepping on my right foot again since the calf muscle has a lot of atrophy. PT is just around the corner. I cannot wait to become mobile again.
