Just a update on my progress: I drove by myself today! It was a successful solo mission. I have been using the crutches most of the day for 48hrs. I am tired, but doing well. I have an Ortho appointment on Tuesday where I expect everything to be peachy, the doctor to be super impressed with me and for him to switch me to outpatient physical therapy.
I've had physical therapy at home since right before Thanksgiving which is great because I don't have to go anywhere. As I've started healing and getting around more it's becoming a nuisance because I never know when he's coming until he's 10min away. When I have to drive to my PT appointments at least I'll know about them well in advance. Fingers crossed my X-rays look lovely.
Moving on, Riley on her new bike in the driveway this morning:
I never rode a regular bike. I had a pink Hot Wheels motorcycle when I was a little older than Riley and an adult tricycle when I was a teenager. I could never pedal all the way. I'd push the pedal down and then change the position of my foot and pull it back up instead. I asked my physical therapist if he thought I've ever be able to pedal a bike and he said yes. We'll see...I certainly won't be able to keep up with my kids. Riley pedals a little bit, but mostly she wants to sit on her bike and put things in the basket.
One final thought from Riley and I:
This is Riley's Repunzal dolly that Mommy and Daddy got her for Christmas. The other day she brought this dolly into my room and tucked her in under my covers. Riley: Repunzal is going night, night. Mommy: In Mommy's bed? Riley: Yeah. Her Name's Repunzal (HER DAD'S LAST NAME) Mommy: Oh, really. (laughing)Actually, she'd be Repunzal Fitzherbert. Unless you can take someone's fake name. Do celebrities get married and take each others fake names? I suppose she could be Repunzal Rider, ewwww. Then again she is a celebrity in her own right being a princess maybe she didn't take either of his names. One more thing on the doll subject, she never wears shoes in the movie. Why the heck does the doll come with shoes? This picture was taken hours after she came out of the box and already she's only wearing one shoe.
