Well, I am on the cusp of starting my sixth week of recovery and I’ve become FWB with the boot around the house. I haven’t ventured outside the house without the crutches, but being able to carry a glass of water is a complete milestone!! It sure makes it a lot easier to do the little things around the house!
Healing seems to be progressing well, with PT I finally have my calf muscle engaged in moving my foot down. There’s been a dramatic leap leap in healing this week. I am hoping upon my return from holidays the doc will take out the wedge in my boot!
To all of you staring out: it does get better. I know it seems like an incredible struggle at times and you just don’t know how you will get through…I’m here to tell you that your body is capable of some amazing things. When I ruptured I was sure there was no way I was going to make my vacation, and here I am on 2 feet hobbling around the house to get packed. We can overcome!!
