I scheduled this surgery 3 weeks before our trial, on assurances that I'd be up and running within 3 days! But I didn't even dare drive for the first week, and still don't go down stairs without holding on to the railing. I drive with extreme caution, checking and rechecking my spacing. I hope I can run my courses and help with the trial. Far from hoping for Q's for Maxie and Lucky, I'm just hoping to complete my runs and not trip, fall, injure or embarass myself.
It's been a disorienting two weeks. I'm jotting down a whirlwind of thoughts and tips but am not ready to share. Meanwhile, I'm keeping busy doing things I can. Like right now -- laundry and planning meals for the weekend when I'll be too tired to cook. And I've probably killed 1,000 stinging caterpillars.
Upwards and onward!
