6 weeks post op

Well, tomorrow is the 6 week point and I am still on crutches. I am having trouble getting an appointment for an x ray, but I think I may be able to get one next week. If not, I think I am going to try to use one crutch in the house and in my office, but stay on 2 crutches the rest of the time. I am actually supposed to be able to go to one crutch tomorrow so I think it will be okay. The whole issue is if my bone density is good enough to allow me to heal properly, but 18 months ago it was 102% so I think I am still okay. I won't push it, but it sure would be nice to be able to carry food into another room instead of having to stand and eat at the counter (which is what I do now). I guess I should be happy that I am not hurting and I can do anything I want, but I am so impatient.
Tonight Ripken and I have our agility class and he is really doing well with my trainer working with him. He is starting to pay attention and is not constantly trying to run over to me anymore. I hope in the next few months he will be ready to compete again because he has so much fun doing it. Well, that is all for now. I will try to post again if I get any news from the doc.
