I grew up hearing an idiom, “you don’t miss the water until the well runs dry”.
I have always admired those athletes who are physically challenged and how they push themselves competing in the para-lympics. Many times it is so easy to complain about aches and pains, yet having no challenges in the physical.
Since my surgery I cannot put any weight on my leg that had the surgery. I have to use a walker and hop on my good leg. Every time I need to move is quite challenging and a workout in and of it’s self.
I see the surgeon on the 30th of this month and I will find out how much I will be able to use the mending leg and hip.
I do my physio exercises every day so that I do not lose the function of my hip. Thankfully I have pain killers that I can take before my exercises.
This past Monday the staples were removed and the incision looks great, no infection and the swelling has ceded.
I am so thankful that I have my best friend that helps me with most everything. Making the coffee, making my meals and so much more. Also, I am thankful that I don’t have to contend with stairs, otherwise I would have to recover in a home like a seniors place.
My hat goes off to all of those in healthcare in the hospital and those who work in Home Care that makes visits.
So dear reader, have you ever been challenged, have you ever thought about those who push beyond their challenges and have very fulfilled lives? I would like to hear from you!
