it's saturday. have moar gifs

A funny thing about crutches is that literally every single thing is more complicated. As such, I feel like this poor girl trying to pour ... vinegar? ... is a kindred spirit. Sometimes things just blow up lol.

  
And I also may or may not have had a few moments on the stairs that look like this cat. Or worse, when I'm slowly ascending and the extra crutch that's resting against the wall goes tipping back all the way down the stairs.... womp womp.


This one tho... well... lol idk.


But at is it, things are steadily getting better. Today marks 4 weeks (!!!!) since I broke my leg, and I'm back to nearly 50% weight-bearing capacity on it. Things that felt impossible just two weeks ago are suddenly doable again. The crutches aren't quite so awkward anymore. I'm actually starting to be able to go out and DO things now!!


Feels good, man. Feels good. So here's to having a bad ass weekend full of actually getting out and around a little bit!

  1. Love the GIFs! Hope your bone fixes itself in record time and you can be fully functional. And maybe have a crutch burning party...

  6. Love the gifs! Glad you're feeling better. Broken bones are the worst. I've only had a few, but they were real pain. Don't be like me, though, I never follow the dr.'s orders, end up doing way too much, and then it takes way longer for me to heal properly. You just can't fix stupid ;)

    1. this is my first large broken limb (other than a few fingers and toes over the years) and... well, it's not fun. luckily i haven't actually been able to over do it - the leg simply would not bear weight until recently, which was right in line with what the doc said anyway
