Monday was pretty good.
It is now 56 days until my surgery. When I write it like that it seems like a very long time. But you know, life throws really hard curve balls sometimes. Not only did I get hurt, but I have a new job and can’t get unhurt til later. I need a pre-surgery advent calendar.
On the positive side…surprisingly, when I got up today, my leg/glute etc was feeling slightly better than it has before.
I did find that my left sided back is feeling a bit of strain on the muscles. Yuck. But…that will heal, there’s no chance I’m going to make it worse by lifting a ton of weights or something. (Because I’m not doing those things).
But I think some of the new exercises I am trying may be stretching some things out and reducing some of my symptoms.
So Fantasy here:
I start thinking…Maybe I can Heal this leg before surgery date, right?
That isn’t going to happen.
I will have to apply for medical leave. essentially 2 weeks unpaid because I just won’t have enough PTO or emergency leave accrued. Luckily…I’m a saver and this is not a big deal at all.
The application for leave though is like an entire other job. 😦 Pisses me off, that I have to APPLY to have a herniated disc fixed, but oh well…it’s life.
Work is starting to even out more and I feel more confident and a bit better as well.
And today…was awesome as well because Coach sent me several photos of EJS. I was so so so excited…he kept sending them every hour or so. That is one adorable baby though, a few of the photos he sent were not the most flattering.
