I am so delighted... this blog might actually help someone besides me. Thank you so much for posting!
I am posting this photo of my new best friend (thank god its not forever) the knee scooter with basket.
My doctors appointment was Tuesday and he said I need to get moving again. I have alot of muscle atrophy from non use. However, my NWB has helped significantly so he wants 2 more weeks of that then we will start the PT. I thought I was going to get in trouble admitting that I wasnt wearing the aircast 24/7 because its heavy. He added in ABC excersizes. To me it seems like the perfect compromise to, as he calls it, wake my foot up. I was fearful about getting back on my foot and this pace is helping me with both mental and physical hurdles. Today I did random sets of drawing ABC with my foot/toes while lounging in front of the tv. Its amazing how different my foot is now.
Often I am grateful that I wasnt misdiagnosed by the podiatrist following my case. That I didnt walk on it after the initial diagnoses of one fractured metatarsal from the ER, because it was really 5 fractures and 2 dislocations. I am so incredibly thankful that I have friends and family that love and care about me. When I have times of dispare I tell myself how lucky I am not to be worried about getting the rent paid or feeding the kids. It all could have been so much worse and for some it has been. So, many times I find appreciation for my life. If this had to happen... at least it was in a time of good support onmultiple levels.
If your challenged by this serious injury your in my thoughts and if I could help you I would. Lol, but if not we could have scooter races...
