Ups and Downs

Today started with a spin class, then going to the storage unit for ADTM (the marathon that I direct), then to church, to the mall for Christian's free Build-A-Bear, and finally, back home! We were going to hang out at the pool this afternoon but a storm came in, no complaints. Today was our "down" day after a day of working around the yard yesterday. I drove around with Marc while he picked up rock and mulch. He shoveled, and I worked in the garden. I have notice that I think I'm okay until I'm a little into an activity. I started my weeding by bending over which didn't work. So then I grabbed my stool. By then it was too late. I ended up on the couch with ice for about two hours last night. So to make a long story short, I ended back on one crutch today, voluntarily. I guess I feel a little better today, but I can still feel all that I did yesterday. Since going off of crutches, my pain has gone from about a 2 to a 7-8. I can only imagine what it would feel like if I tried to run. I'll pass.

  1. take a deep breath. You are almost to game day!!! Try to avoid anything that will create extra inflammation in the joint before surgery. Less is more right now. Chin up!
