Good evening everyone!! hope you are all having a better day today? Just a thought to 11 days when i had my cast removed!! The os told me to stand..... using my crutches i tried...... but told him my broken leg was a few inches shorter because i couldn't get my foot on the floor....... hahaha i honestly believed in my head my leg had shrunk!!!!.... i was obviously leaning so much on my good leg!! i just couldn't get it to the floor!! i'm glad to report it hasn't and am now standing!! it does feel like a very slow process, but i can't believe how far i've come in such a short period of time, can't wait to see what i'm doing this time next week!!!
Hope this has made you giggle, the os must have thought i was mad!!! ;-)
