In the Boot!

I think the cast dept at Kaiser is tired of seeing me - LOL! They knew I would probably be back in on Friday for another cast redo so between them and the nurse I saw on Monday they convinced my doc to get me into the boot today. We got a call this AM to see if we could come in to get booted. So here it is.

And my complaints about how little sleep I’m getting were also heard. They gave me this boot for night time use. I sure hope I can sleep with this one.

And I got to wash my foot for the first time in 2.5 weeks! The bottom part of my incision is quite scabby and is much more tender than the top for some reason so all I could do was blot it with a soapy wash rag and then rinse it with running water. I used one of my hubbys socks so I could get it on without bending my foot. Here is my washed, socked and booted foot. This boot feels so good since there is nothing hard pressing on my heel and lots of soft foam surrounding it.

 Nothing exciting will be happening for a while regarding my foot.  I'm non-weight bearing for another 3 weeks.  I'll see the doc next week and he'll show me how to start massaging my scar in order to start breaking up the scar tissue.  I sure wouldn't be able to do it this week since the lower part of the incision is really tender.  In April I'll start partial weight bearing so that should be fun!
