I’ve been trying to avoid this update. I was hoping to be able to say that the arm was out of plaster and everything was getting back to normal. No such luck unfortunately! The plaster will be on for another five weeks. To say I’m not happy is a huge understatement.
The knee is improving, because I bought myself a very hot looking new spin bike. Riding every day has been exactly what my knee needs. But more bad news! The doctor has now told me to stay off it. Because I have been using just one arm to hold on, that has put pressure on my back, right at it’s weakest spot , where my spine fractured a few years ago, when a car hit me. Result is, I now have a back injury to add to the broken bones and knee injury.
So now, I’ve been told to forget any exercise for five weeks.
Here’s my new spin bike. All I can do is look at it for now. But at least looking at it makes me smile. One day maybe, riding it will make me smile more.
