Hi My Spark Friends!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Hi everyone, I hope each & everyone of you are doing well. I haven't been on SP, or on line for awhile. I did mention a while back that I was in a car accident & going for therapy. It's helping me quite a bit. I actually workout /W/ weight machines. It's a gym & I'm loving it. I am limited at what I can do, but it's helping me, so that's all that matters. I have to wear a belt around my waist, because if I don't I'm in great pain. I just hope that I will be back close enough to my old self.
I do apologize for not stopping by to say hello sooner, I just have a rough time sitting in front of the computer for awhile. My lower back bothers me sitting.
Well at least I'm working out & walking backwards on the treadmill. My therapist has me doing this. I now can walk on the treadmill for 20 min /W/ some pain still in the back. But I'm coming around.
I'll pop in to say hi more often. I tell U one thing, when I get home from therapy, I'm wiped out, & just want to lay down.
Stay well everyone & take care.
I love You all,
LEE

    Hi Wendy, Rhonda, Donna & Turtlerae,

It was so wonderful hearing from all of you. Thanks so much for caring how I'm coming along.

I will be able to do more cardio now. I finally got up to 20 to 25 min on treadmill, where a month ago I barely could walk for 5 min. I did mention, my therapist has me walking backwards on it, cause it will strengthen my back & core. The only thing he told me I could never run again, because of the injury on my knee. The impact will hurt me. So that's the least of my worry. I just want to be able to do anything at this point. I gained 15 lbs since, but /W/ more cardio I should knock it off. Keep your fingers crossed for me there. I feel uncomfortable. I'm not used to being this weight. I'm only 5 ft & it shows. BOO HOO!
Thanks for all your concerns
Love YOU ALL!

    Lee, It is sooooo nice to hear from you and glad to hear that you are on the mend. It sounds like you really have been put through the wringer with your injuries. It must have beenvery difficult for you particularly as you have been so active. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Big Hug, Rhonda

    Helloooooooo Lee!

Thanks for the update. I am so glad to hear that you are improving. I should have known you would love the gym part of your therapy! Good for you; that is so important.

Take things slowly, and follow everything they tell you to. I empathize with your pain; I suffered with back pain for about 10 years. Probably your being in shape will make your recovery better. Hang in there, my friend!

Love you and Miss you!
