Well, hobbled into a store today and pushed a shopping cart. One milestone down a gazillion more to go. I can now walk about 50 steps without using a crutch at all. It's not pretty, but I.CAN.DO.IT!
I tend to move very slowly and must consciously think about the mechanics of walking with the right leg, all the while holding my right arm out at my side in some freakish wing-like display. BUT. I. CAN. DO. IT!
I might get to Wally World tomorrow, but today I ventured into Tractor Supply. It was a small enough store for me to make it across the parking lot and the store is small enough to maneuver, so although it wasn't the store of my choosing, I've still done it.
Just had to share that at 6 and a half weeks, I am putting 100% weight on my injured knee/leg. YES!!! And for any cradle Catholics that may follow this blog, I have something to share soon regarding novena's and saints!! What can I say? I'm a practicing Lutheran with a devout belief in asking for the intercession of saints. HUGE believer!
