Summer and fall have come and gone as have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. After a month in physical therapy, I was released to do my therapy at home which I do. My foot is so much better and although it has been a difficult time, I am so glad that I had the surgery. I still use the electric chairs available at large stores because I don’t want to push my good fortune as I continue to heal.
Wednesday was a beautiful and warm day. As we got home, I told Don that I really was ready to get on the road. We still have stuff to do before that can happen, but I am in the “mentally making a list" stage. Soon I will be making the actual list and packing.
Things that have gotten accomplished: Don had the Jeep lifted and it is really high and it is not easy for me to get in, so Don put a handle in so I can pull myself up. I have to remember to turn around and make sure my left foot goes out first and then bring the right foot down. It’s not a big deal, just a different way of doing things for a while.
We‘ve been home since May, which is a long time for us and are looking to leaving in about six weeks are so. We plan to eat our way to Utah on the southern route.
