Walking

Recently far side of fifty http://farsideoffifty.blogspot.com/ left a comment about how she too had broke her ankle 30 years ago and was in a cast for months and months..had to learn to walk again and etc.

Today....they have hardware....plates, screws and etc. that allow you to get up way before the bones are actually healed.
two screws here..... a plate with seven screws here...

and I am walking! It's slow and not too pretty but I am making progress. It really is amazing that it has been less than seven weeks since it all happened. These are the only shoes that I can get on and think I may need to buy some more Velcro type for winter since the Doc says swelling will continue for some time. I will have to be more style conscious next year:)

Good news. Walking and next dancing. I just recently got back in regular shoes as I was sentenced to flip flops due to the toe accident. Feels good, don't it?
Peace

Great to see that you are up and moving. What an ordeal, but it looks like you are having a good recovery.

Seven weeks - it is amazing what they can do now isn't it? You leg looks pretty good considering. I am glad you are getting better.
