Today I went to my follow-up appointment for my foot surgery. I’m off my crutches!
I’m walking with a limp and it’s kind of labored, but I can walk. We’ll continue to treat the spot (it’s still an open wound) for two weeks when I go back. By then the skin should have grown to “fill in the hole”.
So as long as I don’t have too much pain when I walk, I can move around now. Can’t do things like cut the grass or go to the gym (drat!) because sweaty socks on an open wound on the ball of my foot where I’d be pushing off from…well, that’s just not a good idea.
But tonight I could walk into the kitchen, get my food, sit down, and wash the dishes. I can contribute again!
