We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

Takin' It to the Streets
Seth is still battling fatigue and pain. As he walks more, his right leg hurts more. The pain in his tailbone was decreasing, but has become pretty constant again. When we asked his doctor about that, she said that the nerves are regenerating and waking up and, therefore, it's going to hurt more before it hurts less. I really wish I had a copy of his pelvis X-ray to post--the two five-inch screws that are holding his pelvis to his spine are quite impressive--or, should I say, spectacular.
Seth with Thung and Chang
Because of pain and fatigue, he doesn't always make his appointments and such was the case on Tuesday. So when we went into Bethesda that evening for dinner, he wore his leg to do some make-up PT. Bethesda, like Silver Spring, has sidewalks of paving brick, so it has plenty of places to be tripped up, but he handled it like a pro.
After dinner, we went to the grocery store to purchase our Halloween pumpkins and ended up doing some other shopping, so Seth got more of a workout than we planned. Not a bad thing.
