It has been exactly one year since I broke my leg. Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it has only been a year!
In this picture my right leg is over my left, (because that was the only way I could sit somewhat comfortably) my bottom leg was perpendicular to the rest of my body. It was a long road to recovery…13 weeks…on a couch.
The best thing that anyone said during this entire experience was Sue, my neighbor, while she was driving me to the hospital, trying to keep my mind off of the pain. She said, “Well at least you broke your leg to where your foot is pointing out, that way you can still cycle.” I still get the biggest kick out of that when I think about it.
Now today I’m able to do a lot more than I could one year ago. This morning I walked up my stairs (rather than scooting up them), worked out in my very own workout room for one hour, walked back down my stairs, made myself a smoothie (without having to worry about slipping on water with crutches), and baked cupcakes for my small group. All while standing up on both of my legs!
I still have some things I’m working on: running, lunges, balancing on my right leg, regaining some muscle, and still tripping over my own two feet. Yeah…I’m still really clumsy, some things just don’t change. Lol
My leg is perfectly straight with my other one, all I have left is a long scar with metal in my legs.
I want to take this time to truly thank everyone for helping out in any way that they could, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it, it was a humbling experience, and you all made it so much easier
Husband – Benjamin, for taking care of me day in and day out.
Sister – Jaclyn, for cleaning my house, getting me coloring books and colors, and coming up to spend time with me.
Aunt – Tonya, for cleaning my house, cooking us dinners, and coming up to spend time with me.
Neighbors – BJ and Sue, for getting me out of my house, into their car, and to the emergency room.
All the rest of our families, who pitched in every way they could.
All glory goes to God, could not have done it without Him by my side.
