I have a bit of a different finish that I'm proud of today.
I can walk. This is something I haven't been able to do for a long time and it's an unbelievable feeling. Over the last few days, I've mended from my hip surgery enough to leave the walker behind and take steps on my own.
There's still a long way to go - I'm not ready to backpack up bumpy hills or roller skate (ok, maybe I'm not chomping at the bit to roller skate), and I'm not allowed to drive for a few more weeks, but just the feeling of being upright and moving forward without pain and constant collapse is like winning the lottery to me.
I would have traded in all of my quilts, all of my creative finishes, all of the books I've read, if it could have gotten me here sooner. This, to me, is the biggest thing I've accomplished in years.
I want to extend my warm thanks to everyone who has been supporting me and encouraging me. Being in pain and being disabled by it are really tough.
