No longer Raising Cane

I’ve been walking around the house for several days without the cane, and decided to try it outside when we went to Best Buy. No problems, although even an hour or so is really tiring to be on my feet. Tomorrow marks two weeks since surgery, and although I am walking slowly and with a limp, I am getting around. Tomorrow also marks my return to work, and I think it will be a really long day. A really, really, really long day. I’ve loved having two weeks to sit around with my foot up, reading and watching movies, although I am tired of being a couch potato.

As we drove home from the store on this beautiful winter day with temperatures in the high 40’s, I turned green with envy watching runners and walkers moving effortlessly along. Those days are still far in the future for me. But I will get there. I’d love to think that I can start walking normally in four more weeks, say by early March. Time will tell.

Thanks Shawn - I am walking a little bit better each day, and the pain lessens a little every few days. Art
