The fun I’m having!!

Posted by desflurane on May 9, 2011

It has been a little over a week since the accident. I have to say that I’m doing pretty well. I can get around the house without trouble on my trusty crutches – although climbing the stairs to our bedroom is a bit of a challenge! Fortunately we have a ground-floor guest bedroom complete with shower and toilet. It rarely gets used, but I’m putting some miles on now!

I haven’t needed any Percocet for the last four or five days, but if I forget to take my Ibuprofen every eight hours, my leg gives me a less than friendly reminder…

Big milestone for today – I actually drove a car! I loaded myself up in our Durango and went for about a fifteen mile drive – to one of the nearby hospitals were I hope to do some actual work tomorrow. Driving feels good, except for my left leg being in a “downhill” position the whole time. It is about a fifteen minute drive each way to the hospital, and we did a round trip. By the time we got home I was getting a little sore. But around this town that represents a longer drive than I should need to get to any of the facilites where we provide services.

So, bottom line – I should be able to get back to work! It will definitely be on a limited basis for the time being, but its way better than moping around the house!


Tell me where I've gone wrong... (please!)
