The doctor’s visit today was positive. Look, no boot! However, I do still have to keep the foot up a lot of the day as there is still much swelling. Here were my instructions. “Begin to transition out of the CAM boot. Work on gait formalization, strength, balance, and proprioception” I had to look up that last word. So I’m to add 10% weekly to my walking. Starting point is 5000 steps this week. Nerve pain is okay, muscle pain is not. So still a lot of sitting. But progress is being made.
And while sitting, I can put blocks together. This is the progress made today. I’ve started to put rows together, but already,I see I need to add a couple more rows on the bottom as I think I want it square. It is 49″ wide and will have 1 or 2 borders on it. It hasn’t made much dent in the scraps though.
