So it's like this. Today is the appointment with my (hopefully) new orthopedic doc. Will he give me bad news? Will he set me up for yet another surgery? Could this be the first steps to walking again? Will he be another dim-witted quack?
I wish I were going in there ready to fight - full of nothing but anticpatory excitement at the possibility of being mobile again and charged with the stamina it's going to take to overcome this. I DO want to walk again - of course I do - and I am ready to fight, in a way. But I'm also scared. Scared shitless if I may so.
Baret has agreed to go with me, since I woke up this morning almost in the throes of a panic attack.
Please don't let there be permanent and unfixable damage caused by walking as I have for almost a year (on one crutch, putting some weight on the "stuck" leg, though b/c it won't straighten I can only walk no my toes). Please let me be "fixable" and please give me the strength to see it through.
Have me in your thoughts around 10am-ish CST - I really appreciate it. I'll let you know what happens.
