It's Tuesday morning, and the foot continues to improve a little bit every day. Lately, I'm not so much in pain as I am uncomfortable, and I still can't get a shoe on my left foot. That's a problem, as I am a beat cop and I spend a lot of time on my feet, so I'll be off work for another week or so. The foot is healing, though, and I'm down to one crutch. I can put weight on that foot but the crutch gives me stability. The Doc looked at it yesterday, pronounced my progress to be satisfactory, and said he'd see me in another week. The office visit took longer to crutch from the parking lot to the waiting room than I was in the examination room. I was in and out in under five minutes.
I am getting cabin fever and I'm spending a lot of time on the back porch. Unlike the Frozen North, the weather in the Deep South is very pleasant. Very, very pleasant.
