I have to admit something. I haven’t posted in awhile because I haven’t knitted much lately, simply because I am too tired most days to knit. This road to recovery is a slow bumpy road. Small setbacks, sore muscles, fitting my prosthetic–all things that have made this a difficult time to write without depressing rants….I will try to keep this depressing rant short. I am still around working on a pair of socks and a hat, it’s just slow going at the moment. Today is a beautiful snow day and I get to knit and enjoy a movie, and update my blog. I will enjoy today, even if I had to cancel my last rehab appointment. Only one more to go then a home program and later I will return to therapy to get running again. Now I just need to light my fire, pick up my knitting and enjoy my movie.
I’m running out of time to knit most days. I guess that’s not so bad there are days I have more than enough time. This time of physical therapy is a roller coaster ride of rest and activity. The therapy drains me and makes me sore, forcing me to rest, which frees up my time so I can knit. No matter what, I stay busy. Socks are on my needles, baby hats, my sock blanket and that baby blanket I keep forgetting about. I should get started on some Christmas gifts the next time my feet are up. I’m really liking this jewelry pattern I found….
I haven’t been on in awhile as I have begun physical therapy. Learning to walk with a prosthetic is hard work. Well, today was the first time in a long time (I can’t even remember the last time) that I didn’t bring any knitting, and it’s the first time I showed up an hour early for my appointment. So on this very busy day I have an hour with nothing to do so I am updating the blog with no knitting. How pitiful.
At least I’ll post a picture of my current leg that I have shrunk out of, new leg soon, I hope!
What a work out just crutching around my living room for an hour. I can’t even say that I was on my foot and stump the whole hour. Now that I am exhausted, it’s time for MY physical therapy….time to pull out the knitting. I know I am getting better as I wobble further each day and overwhelm myself with knitting ideas, projects, books and magazines. Something will come of this….hopefully actually finished projects and eventually a 5k run on my new foot. In the mean time I will prop my foot up, try to stop sweating and keep knitting so I can do that next project that I want to do so badly…which was this project yesterday….what a bad habit. Time to weave in some ends, knit some rows and catch up on my knitting reading. I hope tomorrow is quieter and calmer than today, I’m exhausted!
