Hurrah - we've just passed the half-way point in this plaster cast wearing phase of my life :) A trip to the hospital was made this morning and my plaster has been modified again - this time with the aid of something that was a cross between an angle grinder and a pizza cutter! It proved to be a bit of a battle to remove the section of plaster as it was so thick - there was talk of taking it all off and starting again but eventually brute force won and a piece about 4" square and about 1/2" thick was removed from the front of my cast.
I can now start to try to move my foot upwards - very carefully. It is apparently very vulnerable at the moment to knocks and could easily tear again - nothing like making me even more scared of walking then!!
After leaving the hospital there was quick trip around one of the massive supermarkets in my wheelchair- where else can you get birthday cards, a slotted spoon, slippers for teenagers and new magazine all under one roof??
This afternoon I've been following instructions and taking it very easy!
More reading (this weeks pile of books);
And starting a new crochet project - just a little one. A scarf for me - we picked up these colours at the weekend - the photo isn't great but the colours are - denimy blue, mulberry and a green;
I think that lot should keep me busy this week - trying to take my mind off another treat that's had to be cancelled. We were supposed to go away next weekend for our Wedding Anniversary - that's now been postponed until the spring :(
I am getting frustrated at not being able to do things - you know it must be bad when I even start to wish I could do the dusting or even clean a bathroom! Am sure that will pass soon though!
Right - off to call my Mum - I promised to let her know how I got on today.
See you soon
