As you can tell from the past few entries I have done zero, zip, nada sewing for at least a few months. I am in desperate need of some summer tops so there is hope that one or two items actually might get constructed this month…
The most significant thing for me is that I can grab my foot and stretch the quads and the knee. I am trying to work on this as often as I can because I still cannot kneel on the floor without terrible pain. I may never be able to but I’m told it could take years. Who knows? I keep working at it.
Another milestone I was able to do this past weekend was a full rotation on the bicycle while standing on the pedals. We take that one for granted right? I mean, how else do you get up a hill? It hurt quite terribly to do it but I did it! Progress and I’m actually quite excited about it. It means my right hip isn’t going to need a week to rest after a bike ride! (due to over compensating for the weakness of the left leg)
As far as running. I can do more and more straight line jogging, which is getting better. I actually chased down Holly before she went into the street, nearly getting run over! I was surprised at my quick reaction. I’m happy with that because that means when we get a new puppy I’ll be up to the task of chasing after it!
So that’s about it I guess. The only thing that I think about anymore is if I had to do the surgery all over again I ask myself if I would do the patellar tendon again. For me, since I have so much trouble kneeling I’m not so sure I would…
Have a great day everyone!
