Well, it was two weeks yesterday since my surgery, and I'm continuing to make progress. I got my staples removed yesterday, and was discharged from home health. The therapist and I did a little walking outside with the walker, and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to try walking outside a little with the cane. My hip told me in no uncertain terms that it wasn't ready for that, and I went back inside and rested and iced. It's forgiven me, and is still willing to walk with the cane when I get my coffee and breakfast, or do little things that require my hands to be free. So I think I'll use the walker and try a short outdoor walk this afternoon. There are some blooming flowers in a yard around the corner that I simply have to smell!
