As an aside from the story of my three-month wedding celebration (honeymoon coming along tomorrow – the actual honeymoon, that is, not the undirty weekend), a quick update on how things are going.
Put simply, fine. It’s been steadily improving all week and, last night, I walked across the room without a stick and, the Sage confirmed, I didn’t limp at all. My right leg still is a shade longer than my left, but either that is lessening or I’m getting used to it, because I hardly notice it. When doing exercises, which I do standing at the bar of the Aga, I can’t freely move my right leg as my foot catches on the ground, so I stand on tiptoe on the left foot, which is fine.
I’ve not been getting out much and walking as far as I should, because the weather has been iffy and I don’t want to slip on frosty ground, and when the weather has been fine, I’ve been busy. However, today I walked to see Kenny and Muriel – I suppose that’s about 350 yards each way and it was quite all right. Further, next week. I’m supposed to walk quite a lot. I’ve got completely out of the way of it, the last few years, because then I wasn’t supposed to have too much weight-bearing exercise.
Talking about weight, I’m still eating enough chocolate.
