I have upgraded from the cast to this fashionable (not!) walking boot. I can now put a bit of weight on my foot, enough to make it easier getting around the house. I still can't do much as my foot tends to double in size if it is not elevated most of the time. And I can't get out of the house without help other than to the front or back porches. I have not been to the barn in 3 1/2 weeks but Dan did get me in the car and drive me out to see my Plymouth Barred Rock chicks in the brooder house, my how fast they grow! Hopefully in another three weeks I will be back on both feet and able to enjoy the summer and the great outdoors again.
