I’ve made some significant progress.
I’ve showered! The shower stool works pretty well. Getting on and off of it is not glamorous nor is it a cedar bench spa experience, but in these desperate times, being able to clean myself feels like a luxury.
I’ve been outside! I was happy to get out today for the first time since I came home from the walk-in. A doctor’s appointment and lunch made for an exciting morning. Hopefully I got a little vitamin D as well. I was worrying about not working out, but getting anywhere on crutches seems to be pretty significant exercise. Especially going up and down stairs. I need a lot of practice with that. Luckily I had very generous and patient help. Of course I had help, I can’t even drive.
Now I’m not sure how I’m ever going to go out again with the impending snow-pocalypse. I keep worrying about it and the rational part of my brain knows there is nothing I can do, but I keep thinking back to last winter when the snow never melted and just kept coming and I keep worrying that is going to happen again.
Next up I am going to consider getting a knee walker.
Good idea? Or a wimp out?
