Today I said goodbye to my cast and hello again to Das Boot!
And more good news from my doc. My ankle is looking great! (Ok, really, it looks like a gross rainbow, but medical-wise, it’s looking good). Incisions are healing well. Doc says I’ve been doing everything right. Wahoo! I can start putting weight on my foot as tolerated and in a week or two I can start weaning off the crutches!
There’s even more good news! I can go to my friend’s wedding Saturday (just the ceremony, but still, wahoo!). I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to attend. Oh, AND, I was cleared to start working part-time from home next week and then to head back to the office (as tolerated) on the 25th! SQUEE! You guys, I was so worried I was going to be out of the office for another month (which I would not be able to afford).
So, overall, today was pretty awesome. Oh, and I got to go to Target again. You know what that means.
WARNING: Graphic photos in links below!
For those of you curious (and have a strong stomach), here’s a photo of the outside of my left ankle. It’s where the ligaments were repaired. Here’s a photo of the inside of my ankle, which is where the screw was inserted to repair a fracture. I’m not sure which side they went in to remove the bone spurs. Not like it matters when looking at gross photos of my foot.
