NO MORE CAST...

It's history, but I have to tell you, I feel very uncomfortable without that stupid red thing attached to my leg. I will have to wear a walking cast for several days and after that I will go to the lace up brace. He had me try to walk just on my foot, and I have to tell you, it felt really strange and scary.

I have lots of therapy to go through.

It sure was nice to come home and stick my foot in soapy water.

Very nice scar if I have to say so myself. The Doc did a fine job

Got to run. Have to stick my foot in a container full of sand and begin therapy. Not my most favorite feeling at all.

I am so happy fo ryou. I bet you feel wonderful to be able to wash that leg again. When Big Man broke his leg years ago he would not walk on it for 3 days after he got his walking cast. He was to worried he would rebreak his leg. Once he did start walking on it he was all over the place and wanting to skateboard again. :)

whooohooooo! nice and slow now, girl! plenty of time to get it back to "normal" (and I think you should get the scar tatooed some time -- you've earned it ;-)

I know it feels good to just touch the skin on that leg! Take it easy and best wishes on a complete and quick recovery!

Butterfly Wife said...

yay! good luck with the therapy. Maybe when you are doing the sand thing you can put some sun screen on and close your eyes and pretend you are at the beach!

Hooray for no more cast! I'm here by way of the Butterfly Wife and AWTM... in fact, it was particularly because of AWTM's post detailing the delicious foodstuffs you forced upon her and her poor children. I heard the eldest even told you where to stuff your butter! (Just kidding!) ...Might I have a recipie of your choice? Pretty please?

Guard Wife said...

Thank goodness the cast is OFF! Now, just do as everyone is advising (you KNOW you have some really smart ladies commenting here, right?!) and take it SLOWLY!!
