Snowbird has been in the nest comfortably resting for a few weeks (since September 28th) and finally I can begin to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Lower back is healing nicely and doctor is happy with my progress. So much so he is letting me return to work part-time on my birthday for half days (only for two weeks). Then we will see what happens after my next doctor visit.
I am able to walk and stand for longer periods of time now. I still get tired and definitely know when I've done too much. Some movements are still restricted and I need help around the nest from family to make it all work. Sitting for longer periods of time in a chair with the help of a pillow for comfort. It is such a great relief.
This morning I actually picked up my new Patterworks catalog and was eyeing some cashmere and silk yarns for Christmas presents. That's always a good sign. Definitely know I'm feeling much better and my tail feathers are on the mend.
