Weebles Wobble



Okay peeps, bear with me just another day! I should change the name of my blog to It's All About Me! I didn't mean to go on and on all week about my illness, which by the way is now walking pneumonia. But that's beside the point. I'll be fine. Someday. :o)

Anyhoo, I had my six week check up today for my hips and I have been released to start walking without my crutches!!!!!! Yay 4 me! Since getting sick over a week ago I have been to weak to do any of my exercises. Trust me, I wasn't being a wimp even though it sounds like it. I'm actually pretty tough in real life. Don't worry, when we meet in real life I don't talk about myself and complain like I do on this blog. I'm getting sidetracked now. What I was trying to say was I took my first official steps without my friends!

My doctor took the crutches away from me and there I stood....unaided. It really was like watching a baby taking their first steps. I didn't know what to do at first. Then I started singing~Put one foot in front of the other. I wobbled left then I wobbled right then left again, but soon I took a whole seven (cause that's my favorite number) wobbly, but for real, steps! All together now-Yay 4 me!

A very exciting day to say the least. Doc told me I would probably wobble for about six months, but it would get better. He is concerned about how bad my back is and gave me lots of new strengthening exercises to help. He said it took over a year to get that way and not to expect a miracle overnight. I've got a long road ahead of me, but I'm going to take it one wobbly step at a time!

Now it's time to exercise and eat right and lose weight and stop looking like a Weeble!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I have been a little out of the loop and didn't realize you had been sick too. If you've had what I've had, it really kicks you in the rear, doesn't it? Hope you are all better...on all counts...soon! :-)

Oh Amy I can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear you say that you were walking! I'm so happy for you! Would seeing a chiropractor help with your back maybe?

Good for you!

Amy, I am SO behind in my commenting, but for the last two days I've been rejoicing over this wonderful news! I am SO excited and thrilled for you being off your crutches. Just take it slow and before you know it, you won't be wobbling any more.

Yippee!!!

Thanks for entering my giveaway. I poked around your blog a bit and I must say that you are an amazing person!!! It truly is awesome how God gives us the strength to endure things that we never thought we could. I hope that you get over your pneumonia super quick so you can enjoy walking again.

I don't know why they call it walking pneumonia, when they won't let you walk around when you've got it.

Yeah 4 U! I'm glad you're up and about. Keep up the good work. One step at a time, sweet girl!
