I did it I did it.
I did it. I actually walked down to the dining hall with my walker and set in a normal chair this morning with physical therapy. It felt so good to be out of the wheelchair for a change. I go to the doctor tomorrow to see the progress that I have made and what our next step will be. I will find out about whether we are replacing the knee or not. The two surgeries have been just getting my leg ready so the knee would have something to rest upon. I, also did 1035 steps on the nu-step machine this morning. My leg is a little sore which I knew it would be with everything that I did. You don't know how much you can do unless you try to do it.
My grandson and his horse Hot Rod technical name is Don't scratch my hot rod. They have really bonded in a short period of time. He showed him at State in Sedalia, Missouri bringing home an 8th place ribbon in showmanship. He looked so grown up. He went to the American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri placing 4th in one of his English Equation class. He has been riding Englis for a little over a month. I am so proud of his accomplishments. I got to go watch him ride this past weekend. I was exhausted when they brought me back to my apartment, but it was an enjoyable day.
Both of the younger two grandsons are trying band. Matt percussions and Ethan the trumpet. I don't know if they will like it or not, but they have to try and see how they like it. My family will be coming to where my studio apartment is where we have a room reserved. It will be the last time seeing my oldest for a while. He is going to the John Deere Technical School in Milford, Nebraska. He wants to work on farm equipment.
Hubby is doing as well as can be expected. It is hard to him because I am doing things that he can't-do because his one leg does not support him. Plus they don't really try to work with him and let him try to put weight on it and take some steps. Of course. it will hurt, but that is to expected. I have worked very hard to get to where I am and proud of my accomplishments, It has taken encouragement from other people to help me along the way. I admit there have been times I just wanted to tell them to go away, but I didn't because of what I wanted to be able to do again. Take care
