Even though I’ve been cleared for two shoes, I brought the boot to Hawaii to wear through airports and such. Glad I did it due to the amount of walking – I actually think it helped – PT of sorts. The boot also got me first class on the way home b/c the “cocktail waitress” felt bad for me, so she finagled the seat. I think half of my trip was free due to the boot – free drinks, front of line etc. Maybe I don’t actually want to take off the boot. I even got lots of compliments at a recent wedding for coordinating my dress with boot. Ha!
Now I’m in Capitola in California. Big Surfing community but obviously I’m just on the beach - Zeldas - drinking a mimosa – no surfing yet.
To those just starting out after surgery…it gets better. I can’t believe how great it is to walk around in the boot after three months of inactivity. Mornings are still the worst and after a long day of walking around I have to ice….but all in all, getting better everyday. I look forward to the Elliptical and swimming when I get back from vacation. No running yet, unfortunately
I love reading all the posts…..even if I’m not checking every day (I used to check every five minutes when I was on the couch…so I guess that’s progress).
