As of Monday afternoon I have officially received my walking papers, my doctor has officially released me from his care!! That means I can finally go back to work full-duty, do many things I’ve been waiting months to do, wahoo! One of the best parts of the appointment:
Dr: Have you tried doing push-ups?
Me: No, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to.
Dr: Well, go ahead and try. (points to floor).
Me: Seriously? Okay!
Dr: Let’s go, I’ll do them with you.
And there I was, in the doctors office, doing push ups with my doctor. Heck yes! I did two push-ups with no pain! I haven’t been able to do that since back in January! And I can finally go shooting again, wahoo! I already have time at the range scheduled for Saturday, you don’t have to tell me twice. Dad and J have been biting at the bit to go to the range with me again. And now I can!
The only thing I have left as evidence is my beautiful scar and a metal plate with 7 screws that may come out in 12 to 18 months. Will I have the plate removed? I’m not sure yet. Although, I’m pretty tempted to consider it everytime I bump that darn thing. At least I know I’ll make some friends at the airport when I set the alarms off with my arm. Needless to say, I’ve been all smiles since Monday!
