After my last post, I saw the PA, and he cut off my cast, but again warned me not to put any weight on my leg for another month. That was a definite improvement. I requested a second opinion, and saw the Orthopedic Specialist the next day. He told me to wear the boot, and to walk on it, with crutches!!! "We don't want your leg to atrophy any more than necessary!" wow! To say I was/am thrilled is a serious understatement. Just being able to put that foot on the ground gives me confidence and stability. Wobbling on my left leg had been exhausting.
As we were driving home, and I was beginning to wrap my head around the permission to put my foot down, KABAM!!
Instead, I am home, and getting a bit more quilting done. Here's my second finish of the year, another baby quilt. The front is pretty busy, but I think the red/yellow binding tones it down a bit. The back is white, with large colorful polka dots sprinkled across the surface. I asked my husband to make sure that my boot and crutches showed in the photo. ;)
