Wooooooooo Hooooooooooooo! Two weeks have passed and I’m at the Big Five Oh!
What? No! Not the Big 5-0 years old. I’m taking about 50% weight on my left foot. The 5 oh years old thingy happens tomorrow. But that’s not important right now. Walking people! Walking is the important bit.
I’ve been slowly adding a little weight over the last 2 weeks. It still hurts a bit when I put a good bit of weight down on the foot, but it’s getting there. And that’s only because I haven’t walked on the foot since … Good Lord! Over 3 months. Crutches are going to be so much easier now that I can put some weight on my foot. Although the scooter is still my main squeeze until I can walk.
And for those of you who are as confused as I was on the how do you know how much weight is 50% weight. 25% is basically foot down on the floor and using it to keep your balance. 50% is slight more complicated and involves a scale and memory. And for me, sucking it up and hopping up [insert laugh track here] on the scale.
So that is it from the trenches for now. Thanks for tuning in!
