Here it is a little over a week since my great "fall"!! I think each day that I get just a bit better than the day before. I hate this pain and want it to leave me but I know that I have to just wait it out until my body completely heals.

I have been getting out. Yesterday Mike and I went to see "Avatar" at the movies. We went to the 3-D one. I think that this movie needs to be seen in 3-D to get th actual fun of it!! I really liked it. Think that Mike was kind of on the fence with the whole thing. I am so intrigued at the new way that movies are going. So much imagination!!!

Today I got out a little and also yesterday in the morning we went to Walmart to get groceries. I got their little electric wheel chair thingy and rode it all around the place. That was fun!! I always wanted to do that but never had the excuse...This time I really did!! It is fun to do but at first driving is not that fun until you get "the hang of it"!!! I did a lot of jumping at first...trying not to hit people. I am going to be more aware of those people in those little things from now on. You really cannot see the things on the shelves very well. I would have to stop and stand up and grab and then back down again.

Tonight we went to church. My pain was not good so about half way through I did not feel well at all. Glad to get home and get comfy once again. Now things are better. It is just the pain that I am dealing with now...One of these days it will all be a bad memory!!

Hoping that you are all ready for Christmas. We are as ready as we can be. Oh today I had two very nice members from Curves stop by. They brought me a poinsetta and some baked goods. We really have some great members at Curves. I am hoping to try to work this Tuesday and Wednesday. I have not driven since my fall. I keep feeling like I am going to re-hurt my knee...crazy I know!! I can now finally go down the steps. That took a few days but am fine now. Just a small fear!! Never fallen like this before and now I feel so many things differently!!

No doubt you are very anxious for this pain to be but a memory:-) I'm glad to hear that it is getting better a bit every day but just remember to not rush things and let it all heal in its own time.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, dear Sandy and may all your dreams come true during this magical season! xoxo said...

Glad to hear you're slowly coming right, Sandy, but try not overdo things.

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas Day.
