Amy_B : Week 6 Update
Diary entry posted Thu 11:10am 30 June 2005

My OS appointment was on Tuesday and I am happy to say he reported everything was healing very nicely. My cast is gone and Darth is on. After my cast was removed and I said hello to my scrawny, hairy, peeling leg I thought I would be put in my boot and be on my way. But due to my insurance I had to go to an Orthotics place and get fitted for one there. Talk about being scared. My poor defenseless leg that was being exposed to the world for the first time in 6 weeks and nothing to protect it. Everything went fine there and then it was home to start the grooming process. My leg looks much better now. Emu oil works wonders, thanks for the tip Lyssa! I start PT next week. Then on August 2nd I am scheduled for outpatient surgery to have my screws removed. I thought that Darth would be much better then a cast, and in many ways it is. But I had no idea how big it is and how much it weighs. I am so scared to put any weight on my leg. I try to walk and my leg just wont do it. My OS said to put as much weight as I can on it. Use crutches or not, its up to me. So I am still using both crutches and seeing after I go to PT what they suggest.
As for our relationship I am focusing on positive thinking and that if I believe it will get better it will. I know I cant change him, I can only change myself and how I react to situations. Things are not the best between us and I am starting to think that yes things do happen for a reason. Having this broken leg has forced me to slow down and take a long look at my life and the direction I am going in. It has made me realize some things about myself that I want to change and things I want to do to improve my life. Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to read my diary and offer their support. You have truly made my life better and I thank you.
