A good day!

We had a busy but good day. R had his 6 week post-surgery checkup. We were a bit worried about it because he still limps sometimes, especially when he gets up after snoozing. The surgeon says that is perfectly normal at this stage, and he can increase his activity more, including a little bit of running!

I had physical therapy,  which always leaves me sore. I have an ice bag on my shoulder right now. However, my PT is thrilled with my range of motion just 2 weeks post-surgery. I think I'm going to be back on my mountain bike before I know it!

We arrived home after our appointments and headed out for a quick hike as the "next" storm front was oozing up from the east. I could see the clouds advancing up the canyons toward our perch on the mountainside while we hiked.

The sunset was muted due to the impending storm but still painted a beautiful pastel picture in the sky.
A good day all around! Snow tomorrow...

  14. So glad both you and R had such good appointments!

    The colors may have been muted by the coming storm, but that is actually one of my favorites of your sunset series.

    Jimmy and I had our first agility practice last Friday since I broke my kneecap. He was beyond ecstatic to be back in the ring. I still can't get past a fast walk, so I was very re-motivated to keep up with my PT exercises. They are quite boring at this point but I want to RUN!

  24. Great news for R and for you!
    I like the image of an "oozing" storm front, and I can picture it easily. Big shy, you've got out there! Here, I don't have the kind of long-distance view I had in CO, so by the time I see a storm coming, it's already "looming ominously"!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Of course I meant big SKY! Although Shy(la) is pretty big, too ;)
