No Ecstasy

I’m surprised; I really expected more emotion.

Today I finally got my knee to tolerate the full cycle of motion for pedaling my bike. I kinda knew it was gonna happen, so I had time to put on my peaceful determination. It took a few tries for me to learn how to relax the muscles at the critical point around the top of the stroke, but once I got going I grabbed my helmet and gloves and headed out across the neighborhood.

In the end it was just a little less than a mile. Yes, I could have ridden farther, but I want my knee to adjust gradually, not seize up from over-use. From here on out, though, I think it will be far less pain than walking. Four months and one day after the collision and surgery, I’m back on my wheels — new wheels at that.

Rejoice with me!

    Yes, indeed. It’s one of those “normal miracles” and I’m thankful for your contribution in the form of that comfrey tincture. It’s almost gone, but so is the the bulk of my trouble.

    Thanks. This time of year, Jay, with our temperatures, it’s more likely sunrise.
