NO MORE CRUTCHES...

IT'S ALL OVER WITH EXCEPT THE PAIN FROM THE PT...I never thought this guy could put so much pain on someone. It's for my own good I know, but good grief, I have been soar for two straight weeks now and it seems that there is no end to it...Three days a week of this PT is killing me.

It was 8 weeks ago today that I had surgery, and it has been two days since I used a crutch.

What a huge milestone for me as my PT said yesterday. He says that I have come a long way, but have a long way to go. My injury was very unusual I am told by the doctor and my PT. They have not seen very many cases like mine except in football players. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but oh well. IT'S ALMOST ALL OVER.

I have two more weeks of PT and I sould be good to go. Having more difficulty with trying to get my range of motion back than they anticipated, so it will take just a little longer than most folks take he tells me.

I still have to wear a small brace, but that is not a bad thing at all, as it keeps my foot from going side to side and that is what they don't want me getting in a hurry to do at this point.

8 weeks ago this morning, I was sitting in the hospital waiting room raising all kinds of y ou know what because I was hungry, and today I am back walking. Not walking perfect, but we are working on that.

IT'S A GREAT HOT AS HECK DAY HERE IN THE SOUTH....
