Great News!

I went to the doctor today and got some excellent news.  He said that I could start returning to normal activity as my foot allows me.  I can try to wear my tennis shoe instead of my boot in the mornings and then put the boot on in the afternoons.  I just need to pay attention and not overdo it.   Still need to elevate and ice  it when it’s throbbing.  I go back in 3 weeks for a final visit.  It’s still swollen and very sore, but I actually put pressure on it today for the first time and I did okay with it, so I’m thrilled!

I have a bad cold, which I am blaming on the fact that I’ve had little to no fresh air in 6 weeks and zero exercise.  I never get sick.  So, it can only be that I’ve been cooped up for too long.  I will probably not be posting until I get over this.  Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Yeah! Get some fresh air! I don’t know about your weather but it has been so rainy here. I am in Missouri and it feels like I live in Seattle. I am so glad your foot is getting better.

    So glad to hear you can get up and get out now. Try “Ziacam” for your cold. If it has been less than 48 hours since you got sick, it will help you get better super fast!

      Thank you Mel! I may have been on it just a tad too much yesterday because by the end of the night, my big toe was so swollen it looked like a plum! I guess I’m learning as I go…it’s hard to really gauge it because it never actually hurts until later. I’m definitely going to keep a closer eye on how long I’m on it.
