It's taken several weeks, but my new leg and I are getting to know one another, and I seem to be in a groove. Some people have to try out new shoes; well, I have to try out new legs! Now that I'm my groove, I'm walking and moving smoothly again. It would be great if I could run, but as they say, "One step at a time."
Now that I've invited people to come an visit my blog again, I figured that I'll make a fresh start. When you get a new leg as an amputee, it's serious business. You hope and pray that the person who measured you got it right. Now that I've had my new leg for several weeks. I'm starting to get in the groove. Every leg has to have a "groove" that you fit into, and it doesn't happen immediately. The scary part is when you first get your new leg, you think you're never going to walk so smoothly again. You think, oh, my God, am I ever going to get my groove back? An added issue is that as I've gotten older, my bones are starting to shift and have taken on a new form; I used to have more of a "buffer" around my bones. But, as I'm going to keep up with writing my blogs, I'm going to keep up with adjusting to my new leg. Summer may be drawing to a close, but a new season of fresh starts awaits us all. And as always, I appreciate your comments.
