After two weeks of being a captive in my own room, I was feeling brave enough to try and go downstairs. Since my left leg is still pretty weak from ACL surgery in April, I have been fearing the steps. I sucked it up and went down the stairs extra carefully and finally was out of my room! I was able to lay on the couch and go in the kitchen, I have some of my independence back!
And Monday I get my stitches out! Wahoo!
