Some of you may know already that I broke my ankle playing freeze tag with my 4 and a half year old grandson in May. My grandson, Luke feels bad and I told him is wasn't his fault, but he quickly became my doctor and got to work using his "Handy Manny" tools on my ankle.
Here is the BOOT. Isn't it beautiful.
(See that gorgeous knee!)
The doctor put my foot in the BOOT which at first, for me, was terrible. It rubbed against the ankle and made it worse.
The first two weeks where the hardest with the pain and not getting around very well! I tried the crutches which were not fun. The third week I went to a walker and am hobbling around happily now.
I have an old cloth bag from the 1989 Bouchercon (XX) Conference tied to the walker,
just to make it easy to carry around all the things I need and stay off my foot.
With only 2 weeks to go before I can walk again, though I'm using the foot in the BOOT more and more each day, I'm getting back to work on my next book and setting up Janoose The Goose and The Great Snowball Escapade for the iPAD!
