Dorothy Is Chomping At The Bit

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.

  1. Glad to read that the healing has taken affect. As your previous hiking abilities you will once again have to build back up to them.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the new freedom.

    It's about time.
