I miss my leg

June 21, 2006

I had to send my C-leg away again. My precious C-leg! Although, I think I’m in better shape than last time because walking around on ‘ol foamy’ seems easier. What’s ‘ol foamy’? It’s my backup leg. I am lucky enough that I have a leg to use as a back up when I have to send in my fancy shmancy C-leg. My backup is simply the leg I had before ‘C’ came into my life with a better socket, and what used to be a very cool cover. I wasn’t always as comfortable with showing off the very spiffy silver and blue leg. When I got the C-leg covering it was more complicated since it needed to be charged every night and I liked how it looked. Now when I have my foam cover on it feels huge, and I actually kind of feel…fat. Isn’t that weird? So now the cover is no longer cool because I’ve fallen one it and their are multiple holes, and because it makes me feel wider in some way. My dear C-leg will be back soon (hopefully) and I’ll be able to frolic with the best of ’em.

    I had to giggle over the “back up leg.” I know it’s not funny, but it was humorous the way you said it. Don’t be ashamed to show your prosthetic (sp?) leg. I think it’s great. I will send good thoughts on the swift return of the C-leg. Hehehe…

    I’m glad you found it humorous, I think it’s pretty funny. I love showing off my blue and silver one, just not this ratty tatty thing. It doesn’t help that my cat used to use it as a soft foamy wall to jump on when she was a kitten. It’s got all sorts of weird little holes in it. I feel like I’m wearing the old clunker car for a leg. Thanks for the good wishes!

    I love the look of the blue and silver C-leg. I occasionally see one and think that they are indisputably way cool!
