Das BootOr at least pretty close to it – Friday I had my followup with the doctor, and he gave me the go-ahead to ditch the crutches and start hobbling around on my now-mended leg! I still am carrying one crutch around with me, but I’m trying to keep my weight off it and only use it when my leg gets extra tired.  Of course, I still have to wear the big, bulky, black boot, but only for another 3 weeks and after that, I truly am free, as it’ll be back to regular shoes, being able to walk barefoot, etc.  And just in time for summer, too!

I still will have a long recovery period. No ladder climbing for another 2 months, and who knows when I’ll be able to do high-impact stuff like running again. But just being able to walk unassisted seems like enough of a treat for me, now. You never realize how much you take walking unassisted for granted until you can’t do it!
