I cried… but just a little. The smile and wind on my face wouldn’t let those tears of joy win!!
The last time I rode I also cried – it hurt so bad. I couldn’t even pedal without turning my right leg 45 degrees out and had to lay the bike on the ground to dismount because I couldn’t lift either leg over the bar.
Today, I felt like I was 10 again and trying out my bright blue brand-new Schwinn 10-speed for the first time!!
I didn’t even hurt getting on or off!
I kept it easy today – partly because I forgot to put air in those tires and partly because I still have what feels like a chalkboard eraser in my upper thigh which made pedaling feel a bit weird. But I will take weird any day over the nausea inducing pain of yore!
Keeping with the theme of TEN from above- I walked TEN miles yesterday (over 2 walks) and today my surgeon released me to live again – but take it easy, girl – my new hip is a PERFECT TEN – and he’ll see me in TEN years for a checkup!
O Happy day, calloo callay!!😁😁😁
45 days post total right hip replacement.
Let your light so shine like a 10-yr old!!!
