TWO SHOES 15 October 2009

Filed under Week Four

Dr. cleared me for 2 shoes today! I just have to be careful with long strides and no standing on my toes. I am really impressed with how well it is healing. I have a wedding to shoot on the 24th and I think I will be with out the boot on!! One thing I have noticed is that the boot has become my security blanket. I am really nervous about moving around with it on and the Dr. said that is normal just be careful and work on my gait. He also said if I can do a strict home physical therapy then I can quit going in to the therapy office. I think I will go for one more week and then start my own therapy here at home. I am going to the book store today with two shoes on and no boot to meet a client to sign them up I hope! Wish me luck.

PT went well again today 14 Oct 09

Filed under Week Four

Just some really good work in PT today worked out my quad and hamstring muscles. And then did some balance exercises. Left to right is a little off, but front to back was perfect. So I have some work to do. I walked outside a bit today with the boot on. But the big day is tomorrow and I go see Dr Roeder for his evaluation on my progress. I think he will like my progress and move me up on my PT and make my work outs harder. By the way, when you get your walking boot slip on a cowboy boot on the other leg. The heel of the cowboy boot brings your legs to even. It was way more comfortable to walk after I put the cowboy boot on.

4th week is here!! 12 Oct 2009

Filed under Week Four

PT went really well I was walking around the work out area in tennis shoes! Well, I was limping around ok, but it felt good to be on two feet with out the aid of a boot or crutches. The therapist thinks my tendon looks really good and I should be on schedule for full recovery. I shot a wedding Saturday day with the help of my son and we did a great job! I sent some sample photos to the bride and groom and they loved them. If anyone want to see them I will send you a private link.
