I'm getting excited! The cast comes off Monday!
Sun Jun 24, 2018 2:09am

The hope is that I will be able to graduate to a leg immobilizer that will allow the PT to set the amount of ROM I am ready for. The surgeon said initially I would still be in the locked leg position, but at least I'll be making progress. I haven't left the house for 2 weeks because I can't get this casted leg in a comfortable position in either of our vehicles, but we have tickets to go to an Indianapolis Indians baseball game tomorrow. We're taking the kids and grandkids so I don't want to miss out so I'm going to sit in the backseat and stretch my leg across the length of the seat. Not sure what is going to happen at the game because I can't really sit unless my leg is elevated or I perch on the very edge of the chair since the cast comes up to the groin which doesn't allow for any bend. Well, it will be an adventure. I'm hoping it won't be crowded and I will be able to prop my leg on a seat in front of me. Seth is looking forward to going and I don't want to disappoint him so wish me luck! LOL.

          I hope to be "special" too. It usually doesn't work out that way for me either, lol. At least you are past the cast part. Onward to the brace and counting down to the time when that will be gone too. ... more
