My life is very boring right now. Doing the same thing everyday. Getting really tired of it too. So yesterday I decided I was NOT going to just sit in my assigned seat with my foot up in the air. I asked my hubby to get my tricycle down from the rafters in the garage and hook my foot up on the pedal. So he did. Surprisingly enough I was able to go for a 3 mile bike ride around the neighborhood. The weather was over cast and windy so it was a bit different then riding my exercise bike in my dining room. I even went for a little ride on his Harley. That was a bit painful though. The vibration of the bike irritated my foot. So I think I will pass on that one next time.
I got a lot of strange looks as I rode past the people outside. I guess it did look funny with my BIG boot tied to the bike pedal or even on the Harley. It felt really good to get outside and even more to ride my tricycle. My goal this summer was to be able to ride the new 2 wheel bike that I got for Mother's day. But then when my foot became an issue, that goal went out the door. BUT I will someday get on that bike and learn to ride it.
My balance is very unstable from my MS but I was getting better so I know I will again after my fracture heals. For those of you that had not heard, my heel has a very bad fracture and the MRI showed that it was an old one that never healed. Having no feeling in my feet for so many years, I am not surprised that I had no idea that I had broke it. But the chances of it healing on its own is slim. I may have to get it re-broke or what they call "micro fractures" to allow it to heal. This is NOT what I wanted to hear. Being as active as I have the last few months re-injured that fracture. I guess walking barefoot on the treadmill, exercise bike and even basketball was not smart. I go back to the surgeon next Monday to see what he thinks the next move should be.
Anyway it was exciting to get out and at least feel like I am not just taking up space. The weather has turned bad again so I wont be going out today. I will be back in my assigned seat, where I have formed a very nice butt groove by the way. UGH!
