I just finished with my physical therapist and she signed off on releasing me from the hospital! I walked a full lap with the walker and then we decided to try the crutches again and figured out why I found them so hard yesterday… The guy had them set to handle a 7 footer! She lowered them way down and I was able to use them very easily.
We also worked on stairs. Coming down the stairs was actually pretty challenging, but I only had one run at it because the dressing on my leg started falling off! Luckily I don’t have any stairs to mess with at the apartment, so it shouldn’t be a big deal.
I’m not sure when I will be released, but we need to get prescriptions for pain meds and have the dressing on my leg changed first, so it might be in the afternoon. Here are a couple more pictures my dad took as I worked with the physical therapist this morning!
