Annie_L : One Crutch down
Diary entry posted Sun 3:10pm 27 February 2011

Yesterday I noticed I was walking downstairs timing the bad leg with the good crutch (you'll know what I mean)instead of good crutch first and bad leg following so I thought I'd try a few steps without the bad leg crutch. So far, so good. No pain, no weakness and its so much easier. Feel very encouraged by this. I bought one of those seated pedal things the other day and I can now 'cycle' with it. I am doing about 5 minutes twice a day. Its good. Its a long way still to go but its progess. This will keep me going until I can use my own exercise bike.
I actually managed to get behind the steering wheel of a car as well. OK so it was in a showroom but I got the bad leg in and it made me feel that there is hope.
Targets - the go ahead to officially use 1 crutch on Thursday. Getting the OK to drive again and ordering my new car. I have decided to bite the bullet and order an auto. Bad arthritus in my knee prior to this so an auto was on the card anyway.
Did I mention the shower? Wonderful, how have I coped without having one for so long.
