Well things are progressing! I went to the doctor yesterday and got my cast off and staples taken out. I now have a very fashionable big black boot as part of my summer wardrobe.
I was instructed to treat it as a cast and only take it off to bathe...yes I can submerge my foot under water and take a bath like a normal person!! God answers prayers. I asked the doc what the difference in a regular cast and the boot was and he said that it was a simple trust issue. He is trusting that I will keep it on and continue to favor my leg. No pressure on it and I must still elevate. You don't know how frustrating elevating is but to constantly have your foot above your heart is harder than you imagine. I have mastered many new positions other than just laying on my back. ha ha! I hope to go back to work soon and for my mother and TJ's sake I pray that I will back to normal in a few weeks. TJ has learned so much about cooking and taking care of things. I think he has a little bit of a new found appreciation for his wife. He still wouldn't admit it though. Gotta love manly men!!! They are the best!
