Well, mentally feeling better, mostly bolstered by the support of you fellow surfers and bloggers and also by the advice of the surgeon. I does help that he allows patients his mobile number, so that when hope fails you, you can call and seek his opinion. He says in short 'its early days'. There's that long road rearing its ugly head again.
Well somethings happening because my body wants to go down to one crutch, I'm not allowing it yet, until Friday (4 weeks), but my body definitely has the urge to drop one crutch. It is unconscious as I certainly do not want to tempt fate, or risk pushing myself. I have also discovered I can walk backwards better than forwards, whats that about?? Might try moon walking next!!
My hubby shouted across the room 'WOW YOU CAN WALK!!!' And I went into evangelical "praise the Lord, I can walk!' and back into sarcastic "I could walk before the op you idiot!!" Bad tempers not left yet either, oh how I'd hate to live with me right now!
Anyway, trying to make the most of small improvements. I can kind of walk, err albeit backwards, but its a start.
