Slept pretty well and was ready to leave the farm by 8:30.  Made my debut going down the stairs using the railing and one crutch,  It worked pretty well.  Next, I had to finese my way into the back seat of my car.  Short person that I am, it presented a challenge.  Had to get my left leg up and on the floor....then figured out how to hoist my fat butt up to the seat so I could slide in backwards.  Of course, we made sure there were lots of pillows and some ice so I could ride in comfort...and I did. The x-rays looked good... the PA and Doctor saw no problems.  No swimming for one month. Home around 11.

 Mary Ellen dropped off a video of the chorus concert I missed.  What a treat.

  Gary mowed and went down to Jen's to get Finn and Coop off the bus...I had physical therapy.  Bending...I am at 88 degrees (need to hit 90)...and totally straight before therapy...the PT was quite surprised.  Sara dropped off some Gazpacho soup that was outstanding!!!

Thanks friends, for all the cards, emails and food! Now, can I get out of this chair to post some pictures?


  1. You and Brett are such over-achievers on the range of motion. ...but that's a good thing. I'm glad everything is coming along well.

  5. Well done in such a short time. The white flowers ? what are they? They look like Lisianthus? Glad the crutch is in a single number, and great photos. stunning close ups !! Cheers from Jean.

  6. I'm glad that you got such good news! Be careful!

  7. Way to go... I've heard that getting that range of motion is critical to a great recovery.
    Love the flowers.

  8. Only 2 degrees to go...that's truly are tough...swimming in a month...I bet you can't wait!

  9. I'm glad the news is good for you, and I hope you're resisting that urge to do a cartwheel or at least skip!! :-))
