This is a photo of me looking good!
That's because I just returned from seeing my surgeon for my six week check back. My x-rays are good, the corrections in my spine have held, the apparatus (screws and rods) have not shifted, the incision has healed, and I can keep on walking as much as I want to! Dr. Gala says I am way ahead of schedule. Yay me!
I am still restricted from lifting more than 10 pounds, I can't go out and garden yet, and I can't take my anti-inflamatory drugs for my arthritis for a long time yet, but I might be able to tie my own shoes!
The gardening part is a bummer, but I knew that was the case. Hopefully I will be able to do yard work by May.
I will start physical therapy now, as soon as something gets set up. I guess that will give me something to do anyway.
I confess I was worried that I had been doing too much, but nope, all is good. I'm relieved.
