Progress

Just to keep all you lovely people out there updated with my progress...
Well, we headed off early to the hospital today for a check up. Expecting to be there for quite a while.  
We arrived at 8.30 for my first appointment. X-rays....
By the time my hubby booked me in, found a wheelchair (I'm no good at these crutches), got me out of the car, parked the car and got me inside. It was time to be called in .. NO WAITING.
Back around to reception A to see the Dr.. Yep all is healing well.
Go and have the cast off
The renovator cutter is about to cut the cast open

The cast being cut through

The bruising and swelling has gone down after 2 weeks

The new cast is put on...
Wrapping my foot/leg with the plaster mesh

And then X-rays again.....
Back in to see the Dr...   All is good. See you in 4 weeks....
All of this only took 2 hours. So we were home for lunch. Then a sleep.  
I am very happy that my ankle is healing well and I don't need to have it pinned. That's a relief...
My new purple cast for 4 weeks

4 more weeks of stitching, resting, knitting and crochet....
Hope to get heaps done...

  2. Glad to hear you are healing nicely. Pretty purple this time. I'm not very good at using crutches either. I think I'll hurt myself more if I have to use them again. Happy healing.
