The car is going to Glyndebourne… it has to look good. It hasn’t been cleaned since I bought it in January and I cannot drive it to the car-wash… what to do?…. I can clean it myself, in the drive. But it’s not in the drive. Marvellous foot!!!!! Marvellous foot wanted to have a go… and we reversed our way into the drive… with no pain or adverse consequences whatsoever… tho’ I didn’t push it… well I did… but I’m not trying again until the doc says so. Clutching instead of crutching…yay!!
And during exercises today… I crouched, albeit briefly… no pain. The ankle area is still a little swollen and there is some loss of sensation coupled with areas of over-sensitivity (see pic)…. I get the odd mild twinge.. which I put down to growing (stretching) pains – but it’s feelin good. Hopefully I can fully dispense with the Boot before we go away on holiday at the end of this week. Still have to climb stairs one at a time, holding on, but it feels like that will change soon.
I have access to really great healthcare, when so many don’t…. me and my leg will get a second chance. I really want my body to stay healthy for as long as possible…. it deserves the best I can give it, just for serving me so well all these years. And if it does give up at some point… I hope I have lovely friends like this paraplegic surfer:
