Day 25 – Things Feel Good!

By Alison Pignolet

This week has been good. I can do so much more. I drove myself to Heinen’s today (Happy Mother’s Day?) and pushed the cart through the store. Thursday, Andrew and I went to the Art Museum to see the Shinto exhibit. Yesterday I took Mia for a short walk. I’ve added some upper body weight work to my exercises. I can get up and down from the floor and feel strong on the stairs. While I still get a little shaky after doing a lot, I have moments when I’m doing something that I forget about the surgery.

The thing that still vexes me is socks. I just can’t figure out how to put a sock on my right foot.

The incision still burns and stings, and my thigh still feels funny.

Overall, I’m now looking forward to getting myself back in teaching shape. I confess to being a little stir crazy. Just a few more weeks and I’ll be back in the yoga room with you all.
