Twenty freaking days!!! Wow!!!!
Today marks two days in a row in which I have not taken any pain meds during the day. Go me! It feels great to have a clear head, now if I could only get any motivation to do anything. This will come with time, but I have to drag my butt to the pool and get a-movin' ...I had every intention on doing it today, but I had a visitor in the afternoon and no car in the morning. Also, I accidentally slipped on the ONE step down into my living room and wham, stepped full weight onto my surgical leg. This was uncool since I am still supposed to be 20# weight bearing for another week. Let's say that I am not ready to do any sort of weight bearing on my leg yet. It hurt just to touch the ground lightly for an hour. So stupid! So annoying! I know better than to rush up/down stairs. I'm sure I didn't do any damage, but it really didn't feel lovely.
I can shower, get dressed, in and out of my CPM (depending on how tired I am), and all sorts of things now. Having the pain reducing is well welcomed, I appreciate not being so throbbing and exploding all of the time. Although I know my set of bad and good days are ahead of me, I'll take any sort of improvement and cherish it.
