As most of you know, I had a bad fall in February, 3 breaks in the ankle area, complicated by fracture blisters. It was May before I was allowed to put any weight at all on that foot/leg.
Our front steps do not have a handrail...it was on Roger's to-do list when he had his stroke 2 1/2 years ago. So that was not done.
I went out to get the mail and saw this leave laying in the yard...I think it was responsible for me finally having the nerve to go down those steps for the first time. I had to have a photo of it, so in I came and got my camera and managed to get down the steps.
As far as steps, go, it is still slow going. But I can do it...
Roger and I went to Tennessee in October...there are 5 of us girls that went through elementary and high school...my one friend went to Pennsylvania and I came to Indiana...she has been home before but I wasn't there at the same time. This was the first time we had seen each other since high school! Anyway, us five girls met there and ate and caught up with each other. It was as if we had never been apart.
I saw this guy back in September in Terre Haute. Actually I was going down the last street on the west side and spotted him. I quickly pulled off the road into the empty lot, and walked fairly close to him. Or her. It was misting rain...I have worked with the photo a bit to try to improve it. And it is cropped from the original.
First of all, I had a couple comments asking how I was doing, but did not see them till this week. I had every intention of replying either by this post, or by responding on your blog. I am so sorry I did not get it done till now. I had heard something about no notifications when we get comments, but had not thought of it in relation to my blog since I had not posted...I just happened to go there and find them.
Anyway, nothing like a little bling...actually they are the only flip-flops I have found that fits. I am now walking without the boot but with a cane...and every evening there is a spell where I am walking around the house without the cane even. I have some wonderful therapists that have got me this far.
And look! The wound is almost entirely healed. The wound care doctor thinks this coming Tuesday might be my last day to have to go to him.
Just want to post this while I have a minute...I hope all of you are having a good summer. The heat and humidity here really gets to me. But still happy to be walking, even if with a cane.
