This week I at last got a walking boot....and actually walked a few steps yesterday for the first time since February 12. The therapist does not want me walking without she is here. So, felt like I got my wings clipped real quick.
I do put it on and stand and put part of my weight on it. She had me put my foot on the scales and press down till I had put about 35 lbs of pressure on it. And that is what I am supposed to do. But I am only supposed to have it on an hour at a time...I think I actually left it on an hour and a half...wanted to do the partial weight a couple times. There are other exercises she wants me to do that I can do just while sitting.
Week before last was Lorelei's spring break....since I had a spring break of a different kind, she went to stay with her aunt in St. Louis. They went to an orchid show, and this is one of the photographs Lorelei took. Not bad for a 9 yr. old.
I am only using my chromebook right now...so have not did anything at all to the photo. It was taken with her phone.
I still can put no weight on my foot. The wound from the fracture blister is not pretty to look at. The doctor fears if I wore a walking boot that it would make the wound worse. My sanity is hanging on by a thread.
