The Podiatrist Weighs in on the Situation
Lesson #6: This fracture business is not only painful, but really inconvenient.
I was very excited for my first visit to the podiatrist two days after my fracture. I cleaned up, put on some makeup and hobbled to the garage. Looking down the stairs for the first time I had the same feeling when I mistakenly found myself at the top of a black diamond run. I was terrified. Steve waited at the car while I tried to figure out the way down. It seemed like eternity, mustering up the courage for each step.
Safely in the car, I looked forward to being cleared for a walking boot so I could get rid of these crutches and get back to some semblance of normalcy.
