Recovery: week 8

I just realized that I didn't post a recovery update last week.  In short, I'm doing pretty well.  I had a doctor appointment on Monday where I got yet more x-rays taken; according to them my leg is doing just dandy. They gave me one of these things on the right here. It's supposed to allow me to wear a regular pair of shoes but it's so darn uncomfortable and its shoe destroying capabilities are so high that I'm just going to stay in "Das Boot" until the surgery on June 1st.

What is "Das Boot"?  It's what my husband calls the clunky contraption I'm gimping around in now.  See- this is my foot:
This is Coriander seeing if "Das Boot" is edible:
Most definitely NOT edible Big Brother!

So far so good, only two weeks to go!!!


  1. Very attractive. ;-) Two weeks - I am so jealous!!!

  2. Yeah, but that last week is going to feel like forever ;)

  3. 'das boot' is quite a fashion statement, but I'm sure you'll be thankful to get it off before the hot weather hits. Two weeks isn't so long to go, you can do that standing on your head!

  4. During that weekend when it was 80 degrees both days I really sweat my leg off! So yeah, I'm pretty glad I won't be stuck in this thing into the summer.
