newest news on the gimp leg :)

Well, I had a doctor's appointment on Monday...things went a little differently than planned, but I think it is a good thing!! Originally, the plan was to put me in a walking boot but still be non-weight bearing and in two weeks start putting some weight on it, but still using crutches, and then two weeks later starting to walk in the boot without my crutches, so it would have still been 4 more weeks until I could fully walk with a boot, and 6 weeks until I could drive/walk with no boot....BUT the new plan is: He put me in another cast (hot pink this time - haha) so the bone fibers will have more time to heal, and in two weeks (or 12 days now, but whos counting?!) I should be able to start walking in a boot without crutches (well he said at first I may choose to use them for comfort, but its really just up to me!) I am soooooooooo excited! I never thought I would be so ready to start school/work again! Everyone keep your fingers crossed, and I will keep yall updated :)
