No more cast!

Ok, so I finally get out of the cast and I'm free to "walk as much as I want" per my doctor so, of course, my leg is swollen and hurts! gah! This hiking season is shot! And next fall will probably be shot too since that's about when they should take the hardware out.

But, the pool will be done and begin to fill Tuesday night! At least I will be able to swim!

I can now stand and walk without the roll-a-bout!

Still in the boot cast but this is so much better!

I can even drive!

Finally! No hard cast!

I finally got rid of that awful hard fiberglass cast! I still can't walk though - no weight on my right leg for at least another 2 weeks.

At least I can use the shower again instead of trying to bathe and wash my hair in the bathtub. I nearly drown myself every time I try that! I try to rinse out my hair by leaning back and whoosh! my butt slides out from underneath me, I end up underwater, with my legs sticking straight up! argh!

The shower would be great except the shower stool which was left over from the years of foot surgery, is broken! So, I had the bright idea of just sitting in the bottom of the shower and using the handheld showerhead. Sounds great, right? HA! You get stuck in there! No handholds! You can't get out! argh again!

The pool is nearly done though. I'm sure there will be water in it by the end of April.

Speaking of April, I haven't done my taxes yet! Stupid broken bones!
