I went to the doctor today.
The first thing he asked was “how much have you been cheating [with the crutches]?”
I looked back and told him the truth. That things didn’t hurt and I felt less secure with the crutches than I did walking around without them.
He looked back at me and shook his head. “You’re so far ahead of anyone else I’ve seen.”
Now I have the clearance to freely walk without crutches and to start getting back on the bike! Woohoo!
That being said I still have to watch it. No falling or lifting super-heavy things. I can still play the gimp card pulling out the cooler of beer at X-Day. :-P
As awful has breaking my hip (I still don’t like the sound of that — it makes me sound old) is, I guess I have to take the wins where I can get them. I have to think that it’s that I’m young and in shape that’s helping me get better faster. That or the awesome yeti genes. Either way, I’ll take it.
The next appointment is another month out and I’m guessing that’ll be the last one.
