Good morning - oops, we've passed the morning - wow, am I behind this morning or what?? How is everyone today?
It's been pretty quiet here... as you know, I broke my foot last Saturday (a week yesterday), so I've been pretty much confined to the house. We did have to go out to the orthopedic doctor on Monday afternoon and we went to get groceries on Thursday - otherwise, I haven't done anything all week.
Husband went out first thing Monday morning and found me a knee scooter so I could, at least get around as the crutches weren't working for me at all. The scooter made a world of difference, even though we have steps to get into/out of our house, so unless husband is here to take the scooter out for me, I'm still pretty much confined to the house.
The orthopedic doctor put me into an "air cast", which is pretty much like a walking cast, only it's not made from plaster like the old-fashioned casts were. The air cast allows me to walk short distances (a few steps at a time), so I can navigate a little bit better. I was glad to be able to do that since the knee scooter was making my knee and leg pretty sore - anything that gets repeated pressure will get sore after a while. My arms are just now getting back to normal from dealing with the crutches... :-)
So that's pretty much my life these days - sitting in the house doing, not much. I do try to move around enough so I'm not getting stiff but it's frustrating to not be able to get out and do my yard work, etc.
Anyway, as you can imagine, I haven't weighed since it wouldn't be accurate. The air cast would certainly add a few pounds and I'm not able to stand put weight on that foot without the cast. According to my clothes, I don't think my weight has changed much, if any.
So that's my story... how was your week? I hope you reached all the goals you set for the week and look forward to hearing about them.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
