Things to look forward to
My physical therapist had me walk outside today with my fancy new cane, and it felt much better than the walker. At least I feel that I'm one step to no assistance.
My PT, makes me feel that it is possible to be up and around, and to get back on track with life. When he doesn't come, I must admit, I go into that dark thought of never being able to get out and do anything again! I really need to shift my thoughts on getting up and around more, and not be a big baby!!
Perhaps on Sunday, I may venture out for a car ride, or some lunch. Monday, it will be the two week mark, and David goes back to work. I'll be alone for most of the day, and I have to start organizing what goals I have for the day, and how I'm going to put my darn pants on all by myself!! I'm able to walk around fairly well,and get dressed, but those darn pants are giving me a bit of trouble.
Caitlin has Fridays off from school, so this morning she did my makeup :) So nice of her to do this for her poor invalid mother. Of course a little bit of paint on the face, makes you feel a bit more put together for the day.
Things I'm looking forward to are: Cooking Easter dinner, and coming up with a center piece for my table. I think I may do a basket from one of the old Martha Stewart Living magazines.
Of course also, my outing to Target, to snag some Liberty of London goodies.
Also, for my swelling to go down so that I can wear normal pants again, and not look like a senior citizen. Because really, folks, the walker and stretchy pants have got to go!!
