3 weeks down – 1 week to go

So… as I wrote about in a previous post, I broke my leg 3 weeks ago.

I’ve been hobbling around on crutches ever since and frankly – its getting old!

The good news is that I’m not in any real pain and things seem to be healing OK. I’m still wondering it’ll be like to walk after my cast is off. I’m not concerned about my broken healing leg as much as I’m concerned about my ankle. Its what hurts when I put weight on that leg. I wonder how long I’ll walk with a noticeable limp. :-(

Today I saw the doctor and he gave me a bit of good news – one week from today I’ll be able to trade in my fiberglass cast for a “walking cast” that I can take off to shower, get dressed, etc. Yeah… besides the crutches, having to wrap my leg each morning in a garbage bag (takes 10 minutes!) is the other thing that’s getting really old.

As of today I’m getting around on one crutch which is a huge improvement as I can actually carry a cup of coffee while I walk (very carefully of course).
