I walked to the library without stopping and back (with a bathroom break and grabbed a couple of books inbetween) with the walker. I wasn't able to do it without stopping a lot 2 weeks ago. Yahoo. Oh and I started PT exercises on Thursday. It went well. I'm still working on getting off the walker.

Good for you!  I haven't walked very far yet--still too hot--but looking forward to it.
Did you come up with your own plan to get off the walker?

Congrats, u weren't alone were u? I can't bring myself to go out walking past my mailbox, which is a ways down the driveway lol. But I'm afraid to go walk alone. Didn't see a curb the other day and went down it and jarred my neck. Boy did I feel that for a few days :(. Keep up the road to recovery.

To Viva: I am mostly using the pt exercises and not using the walker in the house.

To Linda: Kim came with me, but she left when I got to the library. Only problem was I forgot my key to the house so I ended up waiting in the park next to us.

I plan on doing it again on saturday and hopefully be able to get to the marketplace instead. (More distance). I was able to do it before the surgery with 2 stops without a walker. I hope to do it again.
