Just got back from my first longish walk in two weeks (before the sprained ankle). I spent two days this week walking around the apartment with the walker, but today I went out into the hall, down to the elevators, and back again. It wasn’t as easy as it was two weeks ago but I only needed a few very short standing rest stops on the way back. I probably should have stopped at the fire doors instead of going all the way to the end of the hall but I’m not sorry I did what I did. But I’m also not going back out to walk the other half of the hall today, either.
Second, I’m seeing yet another doctor on Friday, a vascular specialist. They’ll probably do another ultrasound (of course) or two so they can check out the other leg as well. I’m actually glad for the referral since the right leg has been swollen and heavy for so long. I’m hoping the specialist will figure out what’s going on and come up with a plan to treat it.
I asked the office to email the registration forms so I could work on them at home. Being me, I converted them to fillable PDF forms so I could just type the answers instead of trying to write really tiny letters to fit in the too-short spaces. Bet they’ll be surprised when they get them.
