Exhausted, my will is a combination of many many years in sport and sheer bloodyminded refusal to say I cannot do something I want to. If you discount my hip replacements I am lucky to be blessed with basically pretty good health, cuts and bruises heal quickly and I'm strong for a woman. I am very thankful for my good luck. Sunday I shall go swimming with John, and Monday I will be released from rehab, but I've consulted with one of my therapists and she says I can use our indoor training bike and also the stepper as they are both non-impact.
Columba, I'm feeling totally normal thanks and starting to champ at the bit - I know I have to be patient, I have another 2 to 4 weeks before I can dispense with the crutches and start driving again, but it's difficult to be patient when I feel fine.
More of the same at Rehab today, a whole hour in the weight room, am now lifting 88 kilos on the leg press machine. Water gymnastics after that, then a massage. Weekly obligatory visit to the staff doctor this afternoon - she says everything looks good and I can stop using the crutches at home, just use them when I go out. Still have to inject myself every evening with the anti-thrombosis stuff though.
