I Got the Boot.

I don't have much to update, but I did get my stitches out and my cast off at my appointment last Thursday. I got a boot (one of the "very cool" Darth Vader looking robot boots), but I still can't put any weight on my leg. My doctor said that maybe at my appointment in 2 1/2 weeks I will be able to start putting very little weight on my leg while still using crutches. I can't wait to see what it feels like to walk again!! The boot is nice because I can take it off during the day and let my leg feel the air, which it hasn't in over 2 months. It's a very strange feeling, but it's getting more comfortable every day. The bad thing about the boot is that I can't drive with it on, so I'm back to being homebound during most of the day. Also, most of my pants don't fit over it and it's such a pain (and exhausting!) to go shopping, so my wardrobe is very limited! It's all a sign of progress though, so I'm happy about that. Other than sitting here and watching my leg heal, I've been working some from home, watching TV, working crossword puzzles, reading magazines, messing around on the computer, and then starting the cycle all over again. There's not much to do in a recliner. Any suggestions???

I'm glad you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!!! What a long process this has been! ...I know one thing you could do...have your BFF come over to entertain you with her active 2 year old! When can we!? Love you!

Glad to hear everything is healing well. As far as things to do in a recliner. Let's see . . . when I was on bed rest, I scrapbooked, started reading lots of books-but never finished one, exercised-if you count ankle pumps :), watched lots of T.V.-love the Ellen Degeneres Show and yes, spent lots of time on the computer. I think you've pretty much covered all of your bases. I pray the time goes by quickly and that you'll be up and walking in no time. Hang in there. Love ya.

I'm so glad you're out of your cast, but I'm sorry that you're homebound. I'll be able to share your pain soon, hopefully!!!
