Stitches out

Yesterday I had my stitches out and now have a hard cast on for a week. Next week I will be put in a walking boot. Looking forward to being able to walk with boot. So far the process has not been to bad but I believe the important part is having patience.

Today was a good day. Off of pain meds except ibuprofen which I take for another condition. This time next week I will have my stitches out hopefully and will begin next phase in recovery.
