It's Off!

Just a short note today, to tell you that the splint on my leg is off! We drove to Owen Sound this morning and saw the orthopaedic surgeon (who  we waited for for over an hour).  He came in and said a few words for  3 1/2 minutes and then we were free to go.

It is delightful to be able to ride around and feel like I'm not even disabled compared to what the last eight weeks have been. I can sit up straight, I can go through doors. And it's a beautiful sunny day outside.  What more could you ask?

  4. Way to go! A cast/splinted limb is a cumbersome thing.

  8. A great relief, I am sure, and you now have the weather to exploit this new freedom!

  9. There's always a long wait for an orthopod -- too many slip, trips and falls resulting in broken-bone emergencies.

    Good to hear that you're no longer burdened by your broken leg and can get around more easily -- enjoy, enjoy.

  12. With your mobility already severely restricted that broken leg and splint was just adding insult to injury. Glad to hear you have once again overcome another challenge. Now, how about a game of floor hockey:))
