I had an appointment yesterday and was given the go-ahead to walk around the house without the boot. The good news is that I'm getting better; the bad news is that I'm not normal. My doctor said that most people aren't in the pain that I'm in and can bend their joint better than I can! What's that all about??! So, I'm determined to be able to (sort of) walk by my appointment next week. When I can get my lame computer to pick up the internet connection it's detecting, I can add the pictures of me walking. Hooray!!!
