Still here

In 3 days time it'll be 6 months since my accident. I have been discharged by the physio & am allowed to drive again which is great as I hated being dependant upon other people to ferry me around. However the physio thinks it'll take another 5 months or so until I'm back to normal. I have to use a walking stick which I HATE as without it I have a very pronounced limp. I feel very self-conscious either way so not good.

I'm desperate to get moving again and have set myself the task of investigating 'Sports Rehabilitation' next week but don't know if it's available on the NHS. My long suffering husband is still walking the dogs every morning and could really do with a day off/a lie in. I'm desperate to walk them but Oscar is lively and my balance isn't great.

Knitting wise I decided to make something very simple using colours that would cheer me up:

Courtyard Steps blanket
Courtyard Steps blanket

This photo was taken a few weeks ago and I'm much further on now. I stupidly bought only 4 balls of each colour. This wouldn't have even made it big enough for a toddler to use as a buggy blanket but 2 Raverlors were kind enough to help me out and I now have another 3 of the green. I'm still after a ball or two of the pink (Anchor Style Magicline 1462, dyelot 22726) if anyone has any spare.......

I love the colours of your blanket!! Very fruity. You must be feeling lots better now you can get out and I am sure that you will properly be on your feet very soon!

I really like the colors of the blanket.

I understand how you feel about the cane. I used one for a few months back in 2007. I got tired of people staring at me and feeling helpless.

Hey there - great to see you blogging again. I am so sorry for all the pain that you have been through - it must be dreadful. I hope the cane isn't too burdensome and you can see it as something positive rather than negative, another step on the road to recovery. Things are moving in the right direction for you and that got to cheer you up - along with your beautiful blanket of course - I love those colours, it looks really cheerful.

Take good care and enjoy your newfound mobility and hopefully you'll be back out running before you know it.
