Sunday the 14th was my sister, Cindy's 3 month mark for her recovery from the horrific biking accident she was in (blogged about it here and here). It's interesting to see how fast and slow the time has gone.
Cindy still can't walk and is non-weight baring on her leg until 6 months (or another 3 months since she is 3 months down). This journey has been very hard on her. She has been able to drive a little and she is working a couple of days a week taking phone calls for the doctor she works for. She is normally his nurse, but can't do that job until she can walk around.
Since she is non-weight baring .... she has a difficult time cooking. If she does spend time in the kitchen, her leg turns purple and she pays for it. She can't clean her house.
Cindy is a person who does everything for everyone. This is the biggest challenge for her to let other's do for her. It kind of makes her depressed and she feels like a burden. This may be the "trial" part of this injury ... letting others serve her. It's really hard for her not to be out in the yard working in her flower beds or garden, which she takes a lot of pride in.
Thankfully our mom and her daughters are there to help do the things she needs done and support her. She has been very blessed through this accident .... but the healing process takes time and it is hard to be patient and endure the pain of therapy and recovery.
We love you Cindy and pray that you'll have the perseverance and strength to recover from this injury. We pray that your leg will heal and you'll be walking again soon. Love you!
(Thanks Michelle for letting me add this to my blog - I love you!)
