4 months... getting my tan on.... in need of pedicure!!!
I'm doing pretty well. I've been driving for about 6 weeks now!!  Who knew one could be so grateful to drive again! I'm still stiff in the am and when I've done too much... like go on a walking field trip to petco last week - it was a little long. I was sore for 2 days later. But more or less, I've fully functional, I just have 2 lovely scars and a slight limp when I'm tired or have over done it! Still can't wear heels yet. Or flip flpos... even though I do, I know I shouldn't cause there is NO support in flip flops! But I got some really cute ones from old navy! Any one know of fome cute, summery shoes that would be supportive??? let me know!

I can't believe that was 4 months ago! It is looking good. I bet it is nice to be getting back to normal.

It is looking so much better. Now you will know when it is going to rain. My leg that I broke when I was 13 always hurts a bit before the rain comes in....go figure. Who would of thought a little ice skating would cause so much mayhem. Oh, what size do you wear? I have a pair of crocs (the mary jane style-black) that I just don't wear. I wore them maybe like 10 times. I was going to give them on freecycle, but if you want them, I can send them over to you no problem. They have lots of holes so they are cool for the summer and straps to keep them on and I think some arch support. Let me know.

I'm so sorry that you have had to deal with this for four months! I can't believe it has been that long (tho, you, no doubt, are fully aware of each and every hour!)
