About Me

I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire!

We were treated to another gorgeous weekend. The yard remained too wet to work on the leaves, but we made a dent in stacking the firewood. Even though we didn't accomplish as much as we had planned, it was nice to just relax and play outside. 

I had ambitions of accomplishing much more this weekend, but my motivation waned as my leg pain began to flare. I wasn't immobile, but at times I was definitely uncomfortable. I hate being reminded that I am an amputee. This weekend, as I felt each step, I was acutely aware that I was a prosthetic wearer. 

I'm not sure why I was uncomfortable. Sometimes my body just seems to revolt against wearing a prosthesis. Sometimes being an amputee is so frustrating! When my plans go haywire because of an issue related to my limb loss, I feel the frustration more profoundly. This was definitely one of those times!

Thankfully I was able to just take it easy and rest. This morning, I am feeling back to normal. Here's to a productive and pain-free week.
