    It's great you're able to do normal boring things :yawn: Like pushing snow around.
    I just heard it's been the snowiest April on record. Enough!
    Sunny and the 50's on the weekend, it should all melt then. :happydance:

    Wishing this course of treatment is the beginning of the end for your long recovery journey.
    Hope you get some good weather soon.

    How's it going, our BoneSmart friend?
    I hear birds chirping and the sun is shining with a predicted high of 50.....I'll take it!
    You may be able to switch out the snow equipment for lawn equipment soon :happydance:
    Hope your week is going well! :SUNsmile:

    With the warmer temps & some sun it's easier to be optimistic. Woke the last 2 days w/ what feels like "that old familiar pain" in the right mid leg. Not real severe, but enough to make me hope that it's from overdoing things as opposed to return of the infection. Have contacted orthopedics, waiting for a response. Can hear it now "stay off of it". Appointment is in a week or so & will continue to take it easy (no more brake jobs on a Honda Pilot/ but it had to be done). Ready to swap the snowblower for the mower deck.

    Behave...no more brake jobs and stay off it.:heehee: Feel better when I say it?
    You know when you've done to much and I know you have mostly done well about hurrying up and waiting.
    Try to give it some extra TLC this weekend.

    Hope you're feeling better and the pain is lessening, or gone.
    I can see how your mind would go to the bad place. I'm sure I'd do the same.
    Did you hear back from orthopedics?

    Hope all goes well with your appt in a week.
    Enjoy the day!

    A couple days rest & things have settled down. Orthopedics says to rest it. Watching the race being quiet
