My recovery from surgery has gone well.

Home Health had already been discharged and, on the last visit with Doctor Vogler, he pronounced the surgery on the foot healed. He put me back in a diabetic shoe and said to start exercising my legs to build strength back up.

It’s been a long haul. For a year now, I only left the house for doctor visits and occasional outings with friends and family. Never on my own. Actually, it’s been a few years. Five surgeries since March, 2006.

I’m ready for some limited action on my own. The car, standing unused for about a year now, needed a little work.  That’s done, the tank is full, and I can do for myself a bit now. I can’t go crazy yet, because the legs don’t have the strength yet. But the sense that I can do some things by myself after so long helps.
