I am healing...I have to keep reminding myself of that. I'm much better off than I was last Thursday. I'm down to one crutch, instead of two. I'm weight-bearing and can even hobble around the house without the crutch for short distances. I'm not taking any pain medication anymore.
Of course it's not coming soon enough for me, but it is happening. And once I get in to see the ortho guy, and find out just what's wrong, just what I can/cannot do, I can begin to heal even more. I have to keep reminding myself of this because I'm sore everywhere else! The crutch limp thing I'm doing is causing my sides and wrist to be sore. My other side (hip and knee) are sore from carrying all that weight without the aid of the left side.
This morning the scale was up a pound, too. But I'm sure it's retention or something, as I've still been doing well with my food plan. And I know I jump up and down a few pounds normally...I'm just super sensitive because of my lack of mobility right now.
Anyway...I do realize I am improving. I do see that I'm able to do more without pain. I'm healing. I really, really am.
