Post Surgemication: I can haz shower???


Today I had my stitches out!  What a glorious day!!!

I didn't even feel the first two, the second two kinda hurt, but the last one wasn't bad.  The nice young man cleaned up the incision and put tape over it, just to reinforce it a little for a few days.  Then they took me down for a few x-rays.

Dr. Lee came in and looked at it, said get rid of the crutches, wear the boot for a few more days, and ease into wearing a shoe as I feel comfortable.  This is all very awesome, especially the part about no crutches, but the best part is that I can shower again!  No more needing help to wash my hair, no more not being to make my own food and carry it, no more not being able to open doors!!!  It's like a dream come true!

Here you can see that the incision is about the length of a finger.

You can see a slight bit of bruising on the opposite side of my heel.

Gonna have to slow it down a little though...this boot is a little challenging if you try to go very fast...
