Jim : Hope
Diary entry posted Mon 2:12pm 21 April 2003

Hey all.. Today was my first day back to work. At some point over the weekend, I had thought that I might make this a full day. By the time that my ride (still not cleared to drive) picked me up from the office, I was glad to be going. Even propped up at work, I seem to notice a bit more swelling that what I've seen in the last couple of days. The really ironic thing is that I ordered a set of pedals for the new bike that were setting on my desk when I crutched in. Oh, the irony! Glad to be back and feeling like I'm going to live a normal life(read not laying on the couch 22 hours a day reading and playing on the internet). Headed to the Ortho tomorrow armed with Barbara's idea of an air cast for more versatility. What a breath of fresh air to hear that possibility of not having a hard cast for 8 wks. Even the thought of not having the cast on makes me smile. Not that I'll be blowing down an of Southern Indiana's rolling hills soon on the bike, or out on the group ride on Tuesdays or Thursdays, but always hopeful for relatively quick recovery. If any of you out there have creative ideas for either direct rehab or just working the upper leg to avoid atrophy let me know! Thanks for the comments, they help to make the bruised toes and swollen foot a lot more bearable.. I'll let everyone know how the ortho appt. goes tomorrow.. Have a good day!
