(Sorry, but I just listened to Keith Richards on a radio interview. 'Don't normally wake up early but one day I did with a riff on my mind, played this onto the cassette machine, took it round to see Mick, had it done by 12.00. That was a good morning's work, I thought. Turned out to be 'Tumbling Dice' which hasn't been a bad pension by anyone's standards'.)
Anyhow, today's 3 months since I tumbled off my bike and broke my femur, 2 1/2 months since I got 2 additional fractures from referred leverage from the position of the pins
I'm due for an xray to decide if I can put some weight on the leg next Tuesday. I've been at work for the last 2 weeks, which is good to get the brain out of 'invalid' status. Still not driving, so still dependent on others for lifts and transfers through the security gates
And so looking forward to an 'ok then' to put some weight on the leg, use a cane rather than crutches and/or walker, and be able to do stairs and to cook (my favourite thing) using hands rather than having both occupied on balance on crutches
And if I get the OK for weight on my leg, a good long 'light and easy' bike ride this coming weekend is the highest of priorities, before the weather gets challenging again - this week temperatures went from 20 C (very nice) to 33 ( a bit north of nice!)
And best wishes to anyone else coming back from a bash!
