How come the first sentence of a blog is the hardest to write? I have the thoughts in my head, but getting that first line out can be so difficult. Is it writers block? Or the fact that I know I shouldn’t start a sentence with the word so.
Things have been going better. Still trying to get the leg back to full function. Muscles are healing slowly, but they are healing. I had been participating in a forum on bonesmart.org. These people have been fantastic support and a good sounding board, but I have decided not to go there any more. I keep reading these stories of how great people are doing after hip replacement surgery. Back to work after 2 weeks, walking without any aids after 10 days. Blah blah blah. I am almost 4 months out and just happy to get out of bed and not fall. I don’t need to be reading all these stories and make myself feel any worse. Failure has never been an option for me and I don’t like not being where I thought I would. I know, slow and steady wins the race, but I just want to finish and get to the next one
So, here we are again. (see that, I started the sentence with so) Going through the motions and getting things done. I will keep moving forward because that is what I do. Make the best of the hand you are dealt and play the player not the cards.
Take care and be safe out there my friends.
