Time to get caught up on the blog! I miss it as a creative outlet!
Life has been good lately. In the past couple of weeks I celebrated my 33rd birthday, have been healing tremendously well, bought myself Birkenstock sandals with some birthday money, enjoyed my time at home with Tanzi, finally cooked something (roasted red potatoes with olive oil and rosemary), and I've been reading a fantastic book, Me Before You.
I also went back to work this week and it's been good. It's just so difficult to get around on crutches still, but I am managing and everyone is so helpful and kind.
Physical therapy has made my ankle feel strong and pain-free. I am now dealing with some really bad hip pain on the leg opposite my surgery leg because I am depending on that side so much. Thank god for a really painful massage I had this afternoon at the physical therapist's office. I hope he worked the knots out. I am going to definitely appreciate being on two legs again soon. I can start weight-bearing exercises next week! I can't believe it's almost been a month since my surgery.
