1) He was not to keen on me driving just yet. (But he DID seem to question the possibility that I may be able to try =)
2) Not cleared for therapy yet because there isn't much else that therapists can have me do; than what he has me working on myself. (Could not force my foot to point and flex before. NOW I am approved to force it without applying outsourced pressure)
3) Kicking the crutches to the curb for good. (Even on store runs and long walks to bus stops)
4) BOOT walking ONLY until OCTOBER 20th!! (At which time, I will be walking WITHOUT boot for a week) ...Then I see him once again for therapy and driving clearance.(Hopefully)
5) Massage the incision site!! (Time for calling in my specialist!!!!)
I am 3 days shy of my 9 week post op date and needing to wait another 3 weeks in this boot and 4 weeks to get back to driving really DOES stink.
However, the way I see it is that there is only one thing to do here,
STAY FOCUSED ON THE BRIGHT SIDE ...and try as hard as possible to look past the dragging.
9 weeks down and 'just' 4 to go to drive and walk in my right shoes again! =)))
And once therapy starts (hopefully in the last week in October), the goal will be
To run my first mile.
To begin a whole new exercise regimen to strengthen my body all over again.
To recreate myself the way that ONLY I WILL BE HAPPY WITH physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Happy Friday My fellow bloggers!

St. Patrick's Day and its promise of spring is an especially welcome relief for millions of Americans who have suffered through one of the coldest winters in recent memory.
What's more, Patrick professed no interest in Christianity as a young boy.
The author of this article, Freeman, noted that Patrick's story really was interesting since at the young age of 16, his world was turned upside down: He was kidnapped and sent overseas to tend sheep as a slave for seven years in the chilly, mountainous countryside of Ireland.
"It was just horrible for him," Freeman said. "But he got a religious conversion while he was there and became a very deeply believing Christian."
According to folklore, a voice came to Patrick in his dreams, telling him to escape. He found passage on a pirate ship back to Britain, where he was reunited with his family.
The voice then told him to go back to Ireland.
"He gets ordained as a priest from a bishop, and goes back and spends the rest of his life trying to convert the Irish to Christianity," Freeman said.
Patrick's work in Ireland was tough—he was constantly being beaten by thugs, harassed by Irish royalty, and admonished by his British superiors. After he died on March 17, 461, Patrick was largely forgotten.
But slowly, mythology grew around Patrick, and centuries later he was honored as the patron saint of Ireland, Freeman noted.
Crazy how one can go from riches and no belief to hardship and full of Faith.. So much so that it became his life's work and made him known for centuries to come...
Cool little tid bit I thought I'd make certain to share on this beautifully COLD but sunny new day that many of us see as a promise for a Spring season not far off. I hope that you enjoyed the read.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!!!

So in keeping it simple, if you feel congested from too much food or the WRONG kinds of food, if your energy level is low, if you have been on any medications that have not been eliminated from your system or if you have been drinking ALL the wrong things (alcohol included); then a simple detox may be JUST WHAT YOU NEED.
As usual, consulting with your physician is always highly suggested and looking into the many different types of detoxification and lengths of them are very good ideas too.
And always remember that you are NOT alone! I am here if you should need a little guiding hand.
