The Power of the Purr, and the prayers of friends, must be working. ;-D
The latest x-rays show progress from 2 weeks ago.
The above images are from Boo Boo Day - 5/22, a week after Surgery - 6/3/11, and yesterday's appointment.
They strapped a cast shoe to my foot, meaning I have a sort of sandal on the bottom of my foot/cast.
This allows me to put pressure = to half my body weight while still using the crutches, to walk on that foot.
This will be the situation for the next 2 weeks, and then the Doc will evaluate again, and see if it's OK to put more pressure on the foot, and even remove the cast.
Sooo what do I do?
I put my new reality to the test. ;-D
I have a book bag with a notepad, and a book to read, in one hand, as I head out the office door, down the hall and out onto the street, on my crutches.
I go 3 blocks to catch a bus, then walk 2 blocks to Fresh & Easy to pick up some bread, cheese, and tomatoes, that fit in my bag, then back to the bus stop, then a half block to the next bus stop, then 2 blocks to my bank, then 1 block to a bus stop, then a block back home.
Thanks to support of all our friends, and the great care given me by Elvira & Nikita, things are moving along smoother than I expected, or had reason to hope, with my limited knowledge, and understandable fear.
