Walking on crutches will strengthen your core muscles. Isn’t that amazing? I would rather strengthen them at the gym, though. Breaking a bone is likely not the most efficient way to do this.
Yesterday I figured out how to take a shower. That was not too hard. It felt amazing! I hope I can get the blood stains off the shirt I was wearing when I fell.
I have now successfully washed and dried two shirts.
I have mastered making coffee while on crutches.
I realized my homemade water filter was clogged. I opened it up and rinsed out the charcoal using a strainer. I rinsed out the inside of the filter container. I put it all back together. At first, all the water was coming out black. I had to re-filter the water when I noticed the filter was leaking. I then tightened the filter and removed some of the “grit” that was causing the leaks. Now it is coming out fine. Yes, I did that on crutches!
My walker is arriving in a couple of hours. I’m going to be sooooo happy! I figured out that at the ER, they gave me the wrong size crutches which accounts for why the crutches hurt me too much.
About a week ago I emptied out a shelf assuming that I would have no trouble picking up the extraneous papers. Instead, those papers have been sitting there gathering grit and dog paw prints. Today I picked them up and now they’re in a box. I was able to sort through my tax papers also.
Yesterday I managed to get a package into the house, a three-pound bag of cashews. Today I got a ten-pound box of garbanzo beans into here.
