Boot Day - Hooray!

Today is a happy day.  My cast was removed, and I am in the boot.  I can walk in the boot, and put as much weight as I can handle, but I am not allowed to stand on my foot without the boot.  Right now, I need the crutches to walk.  But I am so happy to be able to bathe and shower and sleep with a naked foot!!  In 4 weeks I start physical therapy.  The stitches look pretty good, but aren’t totally healed at the bottom by my heel.   The scab started to pucker there after my bath.

  1. Congratulations, Cath! Be sure to keep that wound dry. Try and air it out when you’re at home, without the boot on, as much as you can. This will help alleviate keeping it in an entirely moist environment, which seemed to slow the healing process at one small part of my wound forever.

  2. Thanks for the advise. I have been out of the boot as much as possible (when not walking). Especially since it is so hot here. I hope that you are healing better.
