you come home from the doctor with a walker. Yup, 'fraid so. I told them I couldn't get the hang of the crutches, so the doctor wrote a prescription for a walker (I'm guessing so Medicare Part B would cover it, being on SS Disability as I am). The only dignity I have left is that I requested a lime green cast with sparkles. It truly is just that. Silkweaver Gang Green Reflections??? Gangrene isn't nearly as pretty as this lime green, though. Eeeeeeeww! Horrors! This font is the color of my cast.
Anne, your Mum sounds a lot like me, being stubborn and all and not getting the hang of crutches, bless her heart! So we get this walker and my mom has to push me in a wheelchair to get me outa there. I can't use the walker either, cuz I have to hold my casted leg up (put no weight at all on it) and hop on my good leg. It takes a lot of upper body strength, which I no longer have. Plus, I have have a bad shoulder and wrist, and I have sores on my palms from the fall. I'm starting to feel hopeless and depressed. And because of health problems and all the swelling I still had, I'm supposed to keep it propped up above my heart as much as possible. Yes, someone mentioned getting pampered, and it was great at first, but it's getting to be a problem at times.
I'm going to try, in the next few days, to get to all your blogs and leave comments and see what you've been up to. I love this feature of blogs---ya'll are so inspiring!!! In the meantime, though, I want to thank all of you for all your kind comments about my piece for the 24 Hour Challenge, and now, your kind, soothing words of comfort for my current condition. You are all such blessings in my life!
