Day 22 Post op
Tuesday, April 03, 2012
I'm walking without the crutches at home, but with the crutches outside. It's more of a protection rather than a need. I'm limping a little but it's very quickly going away. It depends how well rested I am. For example this morning I wasn't limping at all, but in the afternoon it gets worse and my muscles get sore. Still doing PT 3x per week. It's kind of a grueling schedule, but I have to do it. They put me on the exercise bike last week for 10 mins each PT session with no resistance. I was pretty impressed with how well I could bike compared to walking actually. I'm honestly not too crazy about the physical therapy sessions, but I always feel better after, and I just have to pull through until my doc says it's ok to go to the gym. My job has been super stressful lately. It's my last week at my current job and I have to train my coworkers how to do all of my job functions. Needless to say it's 8pm and I'm just leaving. On top of that they laid off 6 people yesterday, so everyone is still in a bit of shock. We all knew it was coming, so it wasn't a huge surprise but it still is depressing. I work for a small german bank and they're shutting down the US branch. And then next week I'm jumping right into my new job, with no break in between. I didn't get to do any sparking today so I feel a little off and my diet has suffered for it. My well meaning coworker brought in peeps and Lindt chocolate bunnies and I just couldn't resist decapitating them for 2 days in a row. At least it's only a couple of more days until all the Easter candy madness is done.
