Some Days

a picture of a sunken ship - actually under the water!\
Some days, it feels like I’m going through life under water.\
But in other news, I go to the doctor bright and early Monday morning and find out if I can finally wear a normal shoe on my right foot. It will have been over six months since I started wearing either the Velcro Nightmare, a cast, a post-op splint/wrap/ace combo, an ace bandage or the Strappy Terror.\
My physical therapist did my “report card” that I have to take to Dr. Wilson on Monday, and my range of motion is greatly improved, and I took my first real steps on Friday morning outside of the boot. Not much pain, just a little tightness, and some swelling.\
Oh, and I am now the proud owner of the home version of the electrocution machine they hook me up to after every visit. I think I’m going to see if I can make Max smile…

  1. Congrats on the impending freedom from bootdom…now you behave with that electrical thingy. Wouldn’t want to scar anyone for life, would you?

  2. So far, just myself. I forgot to turn it off when I went to take off the electrodes yesterday and just about swore in front of the boys. The amount of electricity that’s tolerable on your ankle isn’t so tolerable on your finger. Lesson learned, not to be repeated.
