Yea, I walked today! After a week of wishing; I finally overcame the obstacles. Since I can't put my bra on by myself, I slept with it on. Since I can't tie my tennis shoes, I wore slip on sandals. The walk went better than expected. Even though I couldn't swing my arms, I walked at a steady pace. I even tried a little race walk hip movement!

Hey congrats Marybeth! Glad to hear that you are overcoming some of your more persistant obsticles.
How long are they saying that you'll be in your cast? Can't wait to see how your wrist is when it comes off. Did you ever find out if they had to "pin" it or anything?

I went out for my sunrise walk this morning. I had to wear my flip flops. I was feeling strong, so I did a little race walk hip motion and I tried a little arm/cast swing! Maybe I need to carry a weight in my left hand to balance me. What do you think (1,2, or 3 lbs)?

Hi Marybeth I am glad you are feeling stronger
If you feel like you need a balance try the 1 pound to start if thats not right go to 2 then to 3 better to start small and increase as needed. Hugs Judy:)
