Hello! Happy Monday, and happy Solar Eclipse day! At the end of last week, I got my stitches out, which I was very happy about! It’d been just over 3 weeks since the first surgery, and I was ready to have them out, for sure.
Friday night, Chris and I went to the Royals game with a bunch of RTS work friends. RTS hosted a tailgate and then we all went in to watch the Royals. It was great to hang out and see a Friday night game, complete with summer fireworks at the end.
The stairs, on crutches, sucked bad. My arms were killing me by the time we got up to our seats. Ugh, quite the workout. Luckily, I didn’t have to go down until the end of the game. If I would have had to use the restroom or something halfway through, it’s very possible we just would have gone home because all those stairs were not cool.
Saturday consisted of running errands and then relaxing at home. Jasper chooses Chris to cuddle with 97% of the time. He loves Chris so very much. Chris and I have been watching Ozark on Netflix, anyone else? It’s kind of confusing (we are in the middle episodes, I think we’ve watched 6 so far) but interesting and I want to find out what happens.
Sunday morning I was able to bike for 40 minutes! I’m able to pseudo-bike – I can peddle with only my good leg, per the doctor and my physical therapists. My left leg can simply go through the rotations. It’s more difficult than you’d think to only peddle with one leg, but the cages on the peddles help. I didn’t go far, and I didn’t go fast, and there was no resistance, but it felt good to be able to cycle a bit.
Looking forward to this week, I hope to see the eclipse today, and then Chris’ band has a show Friday – if you’re not doing anything, come up to St. Joe and watch them play at Cafe Acoustic Friday night.
Have a great week! PSA: Don’t look directly at the sun!
