Two Weeks Out

Its been 2 weeks since Shelly v. Truck. Overall I am doing well. The black and blues are receding, as are the scabs. The extra ass on my ass is definitely smaller, but still worthy of an identity (I wonder if the left half of my butt will ever return to pre-truck dimensions). The soreness and pain is much less, but I still have some issues, mostly my left thumb and hand. Luckily, I am right-handed, but there are so many "activities of daily living" that require use of both hands. These hurt. I can walk, but even little jumps send shock waves that seem to end at that left butt place of pain. I also have some difficulty sleeping.

I only took a half day off from work. But I have been doing some heavy duty resting. I have been spending most of my time at home, watching TV, reading, writing.....I think it was time well-spent. My body definitely needed and benefited from that down time. But I think it is time to start getting back in the game. I'm not ready to get back on my bike, or even spin. I can't do yoga, and I'm not sure if I can lift weights. It is time to start figuring out what I can do, because I'm sure I can do something, and something is way better than what I have been doing.

My spaceship is about to reenter the atmosphere. Time to get off the couch.
