AnneMarie_E : Little steps .... (figuratively and literally)
Diary entry posted Fri 12:26pm 22 October 2010

Friday, October 22nd:

I've had my cast off since October 4th and now have the incredibly difficult task of learning how to walk! How have I forgotten how to do this?!! I feel like Quasi Modo as I lurch painfully from one short step to another ... Every once in a while I am able to "advance" to using only 1 crutch - but after I sit for a while to rest my leg (that is screaming in protest) I need to restart on 2 crutches again ...

I have been doing the "slow dance" (shifting weight slowly back and forth between legs) to try and put more and more weight on my broken leg ... but I get to a point and then my knee feels like it's about to buckle. Grrrrr. Soooo frustrating.
