PT went great no Crutches!! 7 October 09

Filed under Week Three Post Op

Yeah! No crutches!
When I got to PT my therapist said she called my Dr and told him about my progress and he said remove the lifts out of the boot and walk.
So, I first did the normal warm up exercise’s and the I walked around using one crutch.  After one lap I put the crutch down and was walking on the boot!  My boot is a cloth and Velcro number that is really lighter than it looks.  But I think the weight of it is minimized by the amount of exercise I have been doing with it on.  So I am very happy today to be walking around with out the crutches and now I have my hands back too!  Carrying items and walking was really missed.  Once again I have to thank God and my family for all the help and support.  I will keep posting for the day I graduate to 2 shoes.  I was told to bring 2 tennis shoes to PT Monday too!

Talk to you soon!
