I will never give up....

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Just returned from my appointment with the orthopedic surgeon , the news was not good. My bones are crumbling in my lower leg underneath the implant. For right now I have to take it easy and see if it stops by itself. If not I will have to have another surgery or maybe just a brace.
So my exercise program has to be adapted to take this into consideration. I also started taking a calcium supplement . Maybe this will make a little bit of a difference and helps with the healing process.
I now get tons of job offers, but the surgeon said absolutely not. So I will be applying for temporary disability benefits, to help cover our bills and expenses.
I am very grateful for all my spark people friends who are always sending me encouraging words, could not do this with out you. emoticon emoticon

    This you wrote a while ago. I hope the calcium supplement helped and your partial disability pension was approved in the meantime. I'm wishing the best for you and yes - hang on here. I didn't exercise due to injury one year. Just stay here.. 🌸 Iv

    Oy vey! Like SNL's Gilda Radner quip used to quip to Jane Curtain, "it just goes to show you, it's always something — if it ain't one thing, it's another." The bone, the job offers, ...

    A little here, a little there, a little folding of the hands in sleep. Try to keep a sense of humor, even if (as a nurse knows) it is graveyard humor.

    I pray for you in your continued journey. You have many who wish you well.

    What frustrating news! I'm so glad you're able to step back and say "How can I adapt?" - when things are out of our control, it's the only healthy thing we can do. Just give us a shout if you hit a patch of "blue" and we'll be there!
