Achilles repair - day 32

Back in the hospital today for regular checkup and change of plaster.  Apparently healing very well and my ankle is now back in a new pot with a nearly 90 degree bend on it.  So in another 2 weeks time I should be in with final new plaster or maybe a boot.  So still hobbling on crutches for at least another 2 weeks.

And chatting to the lovely lady who changes my plaster, when it eventually comes off, I want to soak my leg/foot and do a shed load of moisterising because of all the dead skin that will have built up and not been sloughed off while under wraps...and a quick look at my currently minging foot shows she is right...

"My name is Richard, and I live near the coast in Oregon, USA. I didn’t have a real stroke four years ago, but I did have most of if not all of the symptoms thanks to a careless Neurosurgeon who was busy trying to save my life from a brain tumor that had other plans. Anyway, after four years of my self-directed, home-based gait training program, I actually took a small step on Saturday the 13th of August, without any kind of aid or support. I was inspired by the great success stories posted by so many Rees followers; miracles can and do happen. Don’t ever let up or give up. And it’s OK to wear bright colors and funny socks."
