7 month update, and one of the last!

September 26th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today was a very good day. I had my monthly meeting with my orthopedic specialist at Boston Medical Center. He took another set of x-rays and was very happy with them. My hip appears to be almost healed, and it shouldn’t be more than a couple months before I’m active again!

I keep my crutch by the door because I only use it when I am walking around outside, the rest of the time I hobble/limp around. I am getting a heel lift for my shorter leg next week, hopefully that will make walking a little easier.

The best news of all is, I asked how likely it would be that I could make a full recovery and be ready to go back to PLC-Srs in 8 months, and he said likely! He suggested I start doing non-impact excersises, like biking and swimming, until I can start running again in a couple months.

I joined the YMCA that I talked about joining a while back. It’s not quite as nice as the Boston Sports Club I belonged to before, but it’s not even two blocks away, and it’s half the price.

I am very excited about getting back into the shape I was in before. I’ve been waiting a long time for this. I’ve been at the gym every day since I joined. It feels so good to be sore!
