You walk funny!

that’s what my 6 year old said to me as I took my first steps with my boot without crutches.  This is a huge milestone for me.  I have figured out this is truly a mental battle for me, more so than a physical one.  I had to really psych myself up to put down the crutches and just walk.  It really doesn’t hurt (at least not my achilles area), but my knee and ankle are having to get used to the weight after a 6 week vacation.  I’m excited to be without the crutches, but realize that I still have a long way to go.  May 26 is next Dr visit, and he said I may start some walking in two shoes. Seems very scary right now.   thanks to everyone for all the posts and comments, I have learned so much from reading everyone’s stories!  happy healing!

  1. I (we) so know what you feel. Read my posts and you will see the apprehension felt along with feeling of freedom.

    You are doing great. Be cautious but not overly cautious. One step at a time as they say!

    Best of Luck..
