Acupuncture follow up
Last week, out of frustration with the slow rate of healing in my leg, I went to an acupuncturist. I was so happy with the results that I just had my second appointment. Also scheduled a third, but we will see how it goes after that. While the leg is far from all better, it is quite a bit better. There is less pain and swelling.
I'm finally able to stay on my feet more, walk further, and get more done. There have been a couple of unpleasant discoveries. One is that after months of being laid up, I'm out of condition. No surprise there. The only thing to do is to work and sweat until it comes back. It actually feels good to work up a sweat doing things.
The second thing that has to happen is learning to walk all over again. Sure, I've been walking, but with a constant limp. Getting my normal gait back requires being aware of how I walk. My balance still isn't 100%, but that too is coming.
My lovely wife, knowing my balance isn't quite right, talked me into hiring a friend to do a minor roof repair. As a pig headed independent cuss that wasn't easy to do. She is right, as the last thing I need is to get re-injured and have to start all over again.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
