During my last visit to the Ortho, I asked a ton of questions. Can I use my foot to balance? NO. Can I press my foot up and down, side to side? NO. Can I drive? NO. Can I get it wet? NO. Can I use my toes to press the remote? NO. NO. NO. So I need to stay off the foot and keep it dry. YES! Check. I get it.
That pretty much put a halt to going to an amusement park for Memorial Day. The kids are not going to be happy. And then it hit me. I have a rubber waterproof boot, and I can still use my arms, and I need to keep my foot up as much as possible. Let’s go canoeing! So we did. I bought a canoe and a wheel cart for my wife. She was able to roll the canoe down to the dock. I sat down and slid my butt right into the seat and we paddled away. The kids thought it was great. My wife was a real trooper and the people at the dock gave me crazy looks. I’m sure my doctor would flip if she had seen me doing this, But our long weekend was saved.
