It’s a week filled with appointments, dates, and funerals. Until Friday when we will celebrate Michael’s life, I have a staff meeting, a Lymphedema Clinic Meeting, and one day of work plus the pool and walking.
What I really want to do is sit crosslegged. The new hip will only go straight up and down. One of my quiet little goals is to teach it to stretch sideways. Every night I stretch it out in ways I didn’t discuss with the PT person. Very Gently as it is very resistant.
Very gently I went looking for a hat….black straw perhaps or screaming lime green, to wear on Friday. None at JC Penney’s. Hat’s are out there. I ran out of walking steam at that point and didn’t go looking for more. Getting my hair cut required only sitting. I could do that easily. The other errands were just brief forays out of the car.
I couldn’t do this two weeks ago. It’s so nice to have my independence back.
