The Most Exhilarating 5 Seconds Ever!

Friday, February 22, 2013

There is only one way to describe my morning: exhilarating, especially this one tiny little piece.

If you have read my last blog, you know I sprained my knee and I have been struggling a bit while walking around. In the short term, I have a cane which is helping, along with some meds, and a knee brace (which will be part of tomorrow's experiment and no doubt, the subject of another blog.) emoticon

YESTERDAY, I didn't think I was going to have enough time during the allotted traffic signal when it was my legal time to walk. I felt like I was pushing it to make it across the street in the time before the "walk" went to "don't walk" and even then it was a barely-made-it moment. whew.

TODAY, I still felt the need to push but when I crossed to the other side, I had a full 5 seconds to spare on the clock. Happy dance! Those 5 seconds felt like an eternity, no flashing signal, admonishing me on, just 5 free seconds. It was a moment of glory.

The remainder of the day has not being without its pain and strain on the leg, and the realization that I am not ready for strenuous walking just yet, but it does give me a fair amount of hope that it will be coming, and I will be ready. After all, I had 5 seconds to spare!

    Good for you! I remember how I felt when I was recovering from surgery and was trying to walk to my favorite coffee shop. Somebody actually honked at me one time for crossing the road slowly.
