(Day 26) 4 week appointment // 8th December 2020

Today was bitter sweet.

On one hand I got to do new X-rays and check how every is going but on the other hand the news were not the ones I was hoping for.

I’ve been super happy because I’ve been able to walk around in the flat and I went to the park twice for a very short walk. This meant I thought Dr. McCutie would tell me I can slowly continue to go for walks and maybe even go to the gym to use the bikes etc.

But Nop. Unfortunately that didn’t happen.

Although mobility is ok (which is a relieve as I had no way of comparing with anyone what it should be like at this point), the bones are still at a stage where I need to take it easy. This means… no walks, no gym, nothing. I can wear trainers if I want to but I mean… no point really if I can’t really go out.

I’m happy I got to talk about the range of motion of my big toes and get some reassurance that they’re moving fine, so that’s some positive news.

The other positive news is that Dr. McCutie and I have decided we might need a ceremony to name my baby Avocado (tattoo on my foot), as baby avocado might not be the best name anymore.

On a more serious note though, I’m very very thankful to Dr.Walker (Dr. McCutie) for the patience, for listening to all my concerns, and for reassuring me everything is going ok. Also for the good banter and the laughs, it really does change my mood.
