Learning To Walk Again

Finally, after thirteen long weeks, I was given the green light today to start walking again.  Of course, I will have to wear my boot and it will be awhile before I can walk without it but at least I'm making progress.  She also said I can drive when I'm ready.  I'm not yet but at least I know that she says it's okay.  

I will have to start physical therapy again, two times a week for six weeks.  They will come to the house, though, so that's a huge blessing.  I know my leg is very weak.  Even the little bit of walking I've done today is making me sore.  That's okay, though.  I'd rather be a little sore from walking than not be able to walk at all.

In other news....Tyler is doing well today.  He is more tired than usual but seems to be feeling well.  What a blessing!  I am so thankful that we are home and things are settling down a bit.  Thank goodness my mom is still here!  I don't know how we would have made it through these past few weeks without her help.

Tomorrow is going to be a long day in clinic.  Tyler has to have a lumbar puncture with meds and that always takes awhile.  He also has an appointment with the GI docs to follow up.  

Brent has to go out of town for work on Saturday.  Once again, I'm glad my mom is still here.
