Sometimes it's the small things in life that make a difference. This morning I put on two shoes for the first time since March 21st! I know that my foot is way more interesting to me that it is to the rest of the world so I've been waiting for good news. This is good news.
I saw the doctor yesterday. The x-rays weren't quite as good as she'd hoped, but things are moving along. I have what is called a Jones Fracture. As it turns out, they can be kind of tricky and often take longer to heal than some other kinds of breaks because they are in a part of the foot that doesn't have a strong blood supply.
She wants me to wear my running shoes with some special insoles for two more weeks. Then we'll talk about running again, starting off very slowly. I wish running shoes were a tad more stylish. I guess I shouldn't complain, at least I'm out of the boot.
