    Had my first pt, calling it my own personal torturer (LOL). But it is help9. I learned how to drive a wheelchair. Good thing I have strong arms. I did see where the fractures are, I actually have 2, and I understand why I hurt so much. Am very thankful that it wasn't a complete break as then I would have needed surgery which would have taken longer to heal.

    Whizzing around in a wheelchair is good exercise when you are forced to be off your feet for a while, so that's lucky. It's also good to know that your bones are strong enough not to have broken which bodes well for a full recovery.
    I hope you get up to all sorts of mischief whilst you are holidaying in that facility - you don't want to give boredom a chance.

    The hardest bit is moving yourself in and out of bed. My PT showed me how to lift my led when I had my hip replacement, it made life so much easier for me. You will be building upper body strength using the wheel chair. Did you see the photo Sandy posted on her Facebook page of the three of you?

    I just saw this. Sorry, you are hurt. Praying that you recover quickly. I remember working like a madwoman to get back to walking, again. I was afraid that the therapist would have a heart attack lifting me out of the bed. I was in the hospital so long, in 2013, that my muscles from the shoulders down had atrophied. I can walk on my own without any walkers or crutches, now. It's funny how you can be proud of the simplest things. I loved that triangle that they had hanging over my head. I still have a weird way of getting in and out of bed. Hey !! It works . Many prayers going your way.

    I am doing pt 2 times a day. Things are getting easier but still lots of pain. See orthopedic surgeon tomorrow so hopefully will find out when I can go home.

    Went to Orthopedic surgeon yesterday. Had x-rays taken. No movement in fractures which is a good thing. Should heal in about 2 more weeks. When I get to go home will be dependent on how well I am deemed safe. But I think it will be the latter part of next week. Other than my pelvic I am in good health. Continuing prayers for quick healing is appreciated.

    Yay, more good news. Can't wait until the good news overtakes the bad. Going home will be one step closer. Just don't take any steps too soon.

    Yippee ki yay, I am home from the skilled nursing facility. So happy to be home and my doggie Chip was very happy to see me. Wanted constant reassurance that I was here. Even the outside cat, Socks, missed me. Will be having a home nurse come see me to evaluate whether I need home pt & ot or not. Still in pain, but do have pain pills to help with that. I promise not to over do it and set me back any, but it will be difficult to not clean house. Needs dusting and vacuuming, something that men don't seem to be that good at. But at least, he did keep up the laundry and dishes. So I do have things to be thankful for and he is going to cook dinners for me.

    No hubby, he passed away Feb 2016. It is my son that was taking care of my animals and home. Thank you.

    Glad you are home. It is so much better to be in your own space with the furry friends to cuddle. The dust will wait until you are ready to tackle it, meantime just take care of you. Hope the pain eases soon. Hugs and prayers.

    Never mind the dust bunnies Shatasmom. The will breed even if you evict them, sneaky little devils.

    You made a lasting impression on Sandy as you exited, what a way to end a lovely meet up. you will rehab more quickly at home in your own surroundings. Just get that sone to wait on you hand and foot.

    Went to the Orthopedic surgeon today, had 5 x-rays. He stated that I am healing. which is good news. I also went Wednesday to my PCP (primary care provider) and obtained prescriptions for more pain pills. The Ortho surgeon wasn't happy, afraid that I will become addicted. But I won't. But it is my pain not his. I only took 4 yesterday and it was enough where I wasn't in pain. Today I have taken 3 and looking at taking 1 more. Yes I know that they are addicting, so am trying not to take too much, just enough to keep the pain where it's a 2 and not an 8. I don't think that is too much to ask. I'm sure as I heal more that the pain will get less and less, so pills I take will get less and less. Next week I will start physical therapy to help me walk without pain and a walker. I am actually looking forward to PT.

    Take each day as it comes Shatasmom. Pain killers can be a necessary evil, I prefer to use yoga meditation to help control pain.

    Enjoy your PT and if the therapist makes it hurt just think what you are going to do to him/her when you recover...
