Scrabble, brief walk outdoors & wine

 Trying to get back to “normal” which in itself is pretty bizarre since it is pandemic normal!

I practiced weight bearing walking with crutches taking some of the weight and we walked to the mailbox. First time outside except for dr visits and it was great. My muscles in the affected leg have really shrunk and I am focused on building them back up. Foot is quite swollen but no painkilling meds now not even Tylenol.

I was able to sit at the table and play a game of scrabble with hubby which saws a nice change.

A nice glass of Chardonnay is wrapping the day up nicely.

How did your day go?

  2. I'll bet it's very satisfying to add some normal activities to your life, following your surgery. I appreciate your title to this post. We certainly do need to make positive choices as we live in different times. Sometimes, when I watch the news, I go into Henny-penny mode and think "the sky is falling!" Then I stop and realize what I choose to focus on will grow. We just keep on plodding along--gardening, cleaning, babysitting our grand daughter and looking forward to every day.

  3. Glad to see you have been able to move a bit. Good to hear you are off the pan meds,but fro experience, don't suffer in silence. Will you go to in person PT or will they give you exercises to do at home?

    1. I'm assuming that it will be a mix of in person and at home exercises but the COVID restrictions in place are changing frequently so we will see in 2 weeks when I see my Dr again.
