Good news! Six weeks after my fall, I have thrown away the leg brace and most importantly, can drive the car again. Looking forward to getting back to normal. Celebrated by having my first swim of the season, and looking forward to getting to the gym tomorrow even if it is only for a gentle walk on the treadmill for now.
In the meantime, I put my enforced rest to use by finishing off a long overdue cross stitch, which involved far more work than I had imagined. Just washed it in a little dishwashing detergent and it came out looking nice and clean. It will look much better after it has been pulled into shape and framed.
