I went in to the office every day this week! After spending the morning on the couch, sleeping a bit more, relaxing and getting comfortable, I would head to work around noon and work till end of day (5:30pm).
I was nervous to go back on Monday after 3 weeks of absence, but it felt quite natural to be back. It’s not terribly comfortable to sit for long periods of time so I would stand at my computer every once and a while and took plenty of trips to the bathroom and the printer. It was a wonderful distraction to pick up where I left off on that Friday over a month ago and forget about the fact that I have a serious injury.
Another great distraction was seeing my dad for a few days this week. It was great having some father daughter time over coffee discussing my recovery and the ups and downs of life at the moment. The fatherly advice and comforting words were more than welcomed 🙂
One month ago today I went for a run, I sat in the middle of the road with a mangled hip, I was rushed to the ER in an ambulance, I was x-rayed while in the worst pain I have ever experienced, I spent 4 and a half hours in surgery and I slept my first night since I was 5 in the hospital.
Today I am starting my last week of hopping around on one leg, feeling stronger and more at peace with my traumatic event. I no longer have an open wound from surgery, but instead a beautifully arced scar that has healed and become apart of me.
I am excited to start heading to work full time, exercising with physical therapy next week and heading back to the doctor for an update. Thank you to everyone who has reached out with supportive words and love. Your support and kindness has meant the world to me!
