The Zombie Waddle and other forms of Locomotion

Everybody’s doing a brand-new walk, now
(Come on baby, do the locomotion)
Happy Thursday!  I hope this finds everyone happy and healthy.
Well, it’s been 1 week since I’ve been able to put full weight on my foot and who’da thunk walking would hurt so much?  I guess I did somewhere in the back of my little brain.  I’m still using the scooter & crutches a bit, especially in the morning.  But I’ve really progressed to mostly walking without a cane or crutch.  Mainly because I can’t find a cane with a sword in it that I like.  But I’m still looking!
I finally got a pair of shoes that give me enough lift so I’m not hurting my left knee and right hip.  I really felt like an overdressed extra from a bad Mummy or Zombie movie.  I wanted to moan and make mummy/zombie noises while I was shuffling about.  But now I’m more like a Weeble.  I’m not going anywhere fast right now, but at least I am going forward (mostly).  This HAS been quite an adventure.
We’ve scheduled my pin pull surgery for next Friday 5/13. I won’t know what time until between 1 and 3 on Thursday.  Pray with me that it’s not too early (mornings … blech!) or too late (I have to fast, no nothing including water).  Dr. Very Handsome said it would take him about 10-15 minutes to remove the pin and sew me back up.  Hey… we have a set of DeWalts… I guess we should let the surgeon do the surgeony stuff.  Then it’s 2 more weeks of the boot and then…?  I guess we will find out on the follow up appointment that will pull the staples and X-ray (yet again) the ankle.  Who knows if I will ever make it to Physical Therapy.
So until … when? Probably the 19th I won’t have much to update, unless there is something super exciting happening.  Calm and peaceful is good right now.
Have a WONDERFUL rest of the week!
