Two Feet. Two Hands.

I am super excited to be posting that I made this yummy dinner tonight because you guessed it I am on my own two feet without crutches for the first time in months! So I'm back to being excited about cooking because believe you me, it is MUCH easier to cook with two legs and two free hands. I saw the doctor last week and the break had healed enough for me to put weight on it as I continue to heal and start physical therapy. The doctor told me to take it slow because my muscles would not hold my leg, but lucky for me I am super determined and don't really like the word
C-A-N-T. I started taking baby steps around the house the next day and then went down to one crutch the third day. Today is my first official FULL day with  no crutches and I even went to the store....okay I leaned on the shopping cart but hey taking it slow right? Ha! We are praying that the swelling goes down and the deformity in my knee will heal as my tendons get back to being strong and healed.
But for now I will take all the little victories I can get and keep my focus on the bigger ones like getting back in the pool and riding my bike. Here's to recovering from jumping off a rope swing and the looks on peoples faces when they ask what you did to your leg!!
