Yesterday I went to the doctor and he said that things, although slow, are healing well. The fusion has not yet started to take place, but the plastic cylinders that were placed are still keeping the space between my bones wide open (that is good news!) I was a bit disappointed to find out that I will not be going back to work as soon as I would like however. I am usually so busy, and being stuck in a hard brace in bed has not been easy on my muscles or my mind. Sooooo.....to keep my sanity the doctor compromised with me and gave me the o.k. to do some LIGHT swimming (minus flip turns of course.) Today I went to the pool and swam about 6 widths. It felt good to move my legs and think I it will become a daily stop for me. If only Zeeland would invest in a hot tub!Surprised I still fit into a Speedo, haven't had that thing on in a long time.
