I tried posting an update a couple of nights ago, but just as I pressed “post”, the website logged me off, and it was lost in cyber space. Who knows where it ended up…
Anyway, it has been just over 2 weeks since that uncompleted left turn. I have been resting comfortably at home, watching beautiful weather, some new snow, and some of the worst daytime TV has to offer! How can the people on Jerry, Maury, and Divorce Court not be actors? They make even the worst of ski bums look like upper middle class citizens!
I have settled into a simple routine- sleep, eat, watch a little TV, eat some more, and then sleep some more… How boring! I’d much rather be out and about! But up to this point, I have found that I’m only good for about 4-5 hrs of being outside. After that, I’m heading for the couch and a long nap. I still have my good days/ nights, and the rough ones.
On Tuesday, I’m supposed to have all of the staples and stitches removed. The doc’s replaced my splint a few days ago with a removable boot/splint. It was the first time since the fall that I had actually seen my leg. It looks like something out of a bad horror movie! Lots of staples and stitches. The doc’s oohed and aahed over how great it was looking. I had to ask if they were looking at my leg or the leg of some model in a magazine!
With four more weeks to go before the doc’s will even consider allowing me to put any weight on the leg, they have also made it clear they do not want me doing any work until that time. So right as the Christmas crunch hits, they’ll turn me loose to help out. I’m sure I’ll be ready to spend some time outside the condo by then! I’m already going crazy, being indoors most of the time.
I have been reading about the gradual opening of areas all across the country, as winter slowly creeps in. It would be nice to imagine that sufficient snow will fall everywhere to provide fantastic skiing for everyone involved in the sport, and our industry.
So once again I wish everyone a safe and snow filled season.
