OK, I've lazyed around long enough. We had our first guests in this week, since my hip surgery. It has been great fun. This place is made for people and it just seems a bit lonesome when we go too long without.
Great news: yesterday I had an appointment with my surgeon and physical therapist. Both agreed that everything is in great shape and I can start navigating....W I T H O U T.... walker, cane or anything else. Super news, and just 15 days post-op! I still haul the cane around for 'soft' support, as I have been given great warnings of pushing the healing too hard and ending up slowing things down. So I am building my strength back up bits at a time. The PT says he is starting me on a stepper next week; need to get my cardio back in shape. Who's side is he on, anyway? Next surgery is scheduled for March 3. Should get me back in riding shape by the time the horses come home. Now, if someone will just go find them for me....big hint, here.
I do tire easily. After Bill and I did breakfast, and cleanup, today, I 'died' for over two hours. It is going to be really, really hard giving up the daily naps when summer gets here.
We are still in the low teens and lots of snow, so all you people in warmer climes, ride for us.
