Hi guys! How the heck is everybody? I'm doing pretty good! I'm doing therapy as often as I can and am doing better than any of the Drs expected. I'm more mobile at this point than I was last time.
My kids got me the COOLEST scooter for Mother's Day. This scooter almost makes it worth hardly being able to walk. Haha. It's really lightweight, has every bell and whistle known to scooter kind and its purple!
Its so easy to maneuver it through the house because its really slim. I love it. Its so easy to go from the bed or a chair onto the scooter. It has the kind of wheels that make it easy to use outside. I have been out with the dog every day since I got it. Its made my life so much better.
I also signed up with this place that's a link to our county busses, its for disabled people and for 4 dollars round trip the van will pick me up and take me anywhere I want to go in the county. If I want to go into the City (SF) or any place outside of my county, the van will link with the one in that county and take me anywhere. I'm able to take a helper with me so just to get a feel for it, my friend and I rode it to my therapy appt last week. It was great. I'm taking my first solo trip out of the house on Wednesday, it will be the first time I've been out alone in a year and a half. I'm excited and terrified at the same time. I'm going to therapy and then taking myself out to lunch. Just me and my purple scooter!
The body cast is off! That's the best news around these parts. For a while there was talk that I'd have to go from the cast to a halo brace but thank dog I didn't need one of those horrid things. I'm in a temporary brace now and am being fitted for a new one next week. I'm just happy the cast came off before the heat started.
Reading about your workouts makes me miss my yoga. I did it every day for more than 12 years. I hate the jiggles I'm getting. I've been doing what I can for my arms but there isn't much I can do with these legs at the moment. I've never been jiggly before.
Take care friends. I'll talk to you soon!
I apologize to the people who have sent me private messages and emails, I'm going to answer you all, promise!
