A month after Adrianne Haslet-Davis' foot was amputated, the Boston bombing survivor describes the challenges she faces in an interview with Anderson Cooper. She says the hardest part is doing "simple things" like showering, going to the bathroom and getting ready - her daily routine.
Adrianne fell in her bedroom a few days ago directly on her tender wound and sensitive stitching. The incident made her new normal seem more real.
"I don't know if it was me just kind of realizing physically that my leg wasn't there anymore. But it was really hard for me. I think it sort of made me realize that I was a lot weaker than I thought I was ... a hard thing to think about," says Adrianne.
The excruciating pain was also a wake-up call. She was reminded to take her recovery one day at a time and take care of herself in the process.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
