Velcro Heaven

Went to fracture clinic on Friday - thank goodness Sheffield only got a light dusting of snow, it's terrifying on crutches - and am now on my third cast, so must be making some progress.

Had my lovely blue glittery cast removed and doctor has now given me a velcro 'walking cast' and I'm supposed to gradually start putting weight on it. I've been signed off until middle of January which was a bit of a shock.

This is me with my blue cast and Kinder with his blue bandage (he'd been for his chip 'n snip at the vet) ... OH thought it was very funny.

Got a lovely purple red mark on the inside of my foot and its surprising how much pain I get if I turn it in the wrong way. It's still pretty swollen. Took the cast off when I got home and had a bath - it was heaven :) Thank goodness those filthy toes have finally had a wash.
