Funny how Tuesdays often seem like progress days!
Today turned out very nice.
On Monday my PT guy and I talked and he noted that I was “Walking great but still leaning all over the place”! So oddly, today I noted that I am walking less and less like a Drunken Sailor (sorry Sailor Babo!). I also think I might be walking to an almost normal snail speed. I will admit, I am still very paranoid about my hip. We have a lot of summer programs going on at the gym, so many many elementary aged school children rushing around. They are having a good time, but there are always a few that just do not look where they are headed. I know it must look like I am scowling at them, because I am always surveying the kid crowd to be sure that there isn’t one zeroing in accidently on my hip.
Walking without a list is very nice, it makes me feel more and more anonymous again.
I saw one of my Charge Nurses at the gym today too. She was so complimentary of my cycling! I enjoyed seeing her, and am looking forward to work with her again. Of course my other fear is of someone running a stretcher right into my hip…because that has happened multiple times. and it never feels good.
I cycled for 30 minutes and then….because my incisions have finally healed…
It was great! I swam 30 laps, which is 750 yards. Not too much, but I did not want to overdo it on my first time out.
It has been so hot here that the pool was extremely refreshing…
and exhausting. I had lunch and spent most of the afternoon
I think I am almost ready to get my Pooch back, which is a good thing because I can see that my firend has come to realize he is HUGE and sometime shard to deal with….
and go back to work. I hope I am able to survive work!!!!
