Let’s see Monday at five weeks!! I worked three days in a row and Am s little stiff!!

I work as a security person, so lots of walking and standing. I actually feel fine today, I just work s few days a week, so today it is back to yard work!! With the drought in Minnesota the trees are loosing leaves like crazy. It is 2000 leaf pickup today!! I long for the evergreens of Montana!! Deciduous trees just shed leaves and sticks like crazy!!!

My new flower beds are marked, I look forward to being able to spend two hours in the garden bending without a cranky hip!!

I have put away all the hiking poles and crutches. The walker which I never used for walking I now use to get in and out of a deep jacuzzi tub!! I feel pretty normal today but I am a little stiff when I first get up!!

Yesterday I worked 11 hours at a gate. I did have a chair so I could sit down sometimes. It was a plastic folding chair and by the end of the day I was getting up by pressing on the front of the chair!!! I notice that I feel stiff when I first get up, like I have to stand still for 30 seconds before I walk forward!! But today I am fine just walked the dog for two miles, our normal twice a day walk!!

She is a corgi and needs the exercise, I guess I do too since I also feel better this morning!!

I have a six week checkup and I do need some formal pt since my muscles are still week! Yesterday I sat on a really low toilet and it was a struggle to get back up!!! I had to put my hands on the seat to help me push up, my legs were not up to it!!!

It sounds like you're doing very well overall, Kelly. I hope you have a good six week check up.
Can you wear earplugs at the concerts if you're not a fan of the artist performing?
Saw your post elsewhere, :heehee: Have fun!

Knock - Knock...we're looking for you.:capn: I'm guessing you'd say "Catch me if you can!"
I'm certain you're back living life to the fullest. Stopping by to wish you a Happy Three Month Anniversary.
Hopefully all is well. :)

@skigirl I can't let our mutual 3-month anniversary go by without wishing you a Happy Three Month Anniversary. I hope you are doing well and having fun. I am getting my energy back, and that is great! Onward and upward, my hippy friend.
