Well. It's been 47 days since the great "dog-vs-knee" event. I'm happy to say that I no longer have to wear the knee immobilizer, but I'm still stuck with the crutches - for another 4 to 6 WEEKS. I'm told NO WALKING for at least that long. While I really don't mind not going back to the office I loath, being stuck as an invalid still really sucks.
And now I have to figure out how to get my hands (and the rest of me) on an exercise bike. Those buggers aren't cheap. And I really wish I didn't have to buy one - but the only one I could find to rent was so costly, it'd be cheaper to buy one!! I was going to put the rented one in the living room, but if I have to buy my own, then it'll probably have to go up in my office/craft room.
AND...once I get my leg up and running via the exercise bike, I was planning on buying a real bike - but those TOO are not cheap. And there are so many things we need to have done to the house....
Sorry. It's gonna be a long(er) road to recovery, and I probably won't be very gracious about it. Oh well.
