Hubby is on the mend!

Hubby is out of the wheelchair! He was officially given the go ahead to walk, so now his feet look like this:
(SonyaAnn, sorry you can't see his knees in this pic!) The wheelchair has been relegated to the spare room.

The doc said that Hubby's right foot is totally healed, but wants to keep him in the walking boot for a while to "build tension" where the incision was. The left foot is almost there and most of the staple have been removed. We are hoping it will be totally healed by the next visit to the doctor next week.

Hubby's first question when we went to the doc last week was, "When can I drive?" LOL! It has been killing him that he cannot get out and drive. Doc said Hubby can drive as long as he doesn't get somewhere and "walk all over the place."

So, Sunday, when we went across town to meet our son, daughter-in-law and grandson for lunch, I let Hubby drive. He was so HAPPY! Silly boy. (I will post pics from our visit in another post.)

But Hubby is still behaving, since he wants both feet to be totally healed and not to have a setback. So, there's the update. Thanks for all the well wishes!!

He behaves better than me. When I fractured my foot in October the doc gave me the same boot.

Helene, this is the first time Hubby has followed the doctor's orders to the letter. In previous years, he didn't and healing took FOREVER!

The first thing that I thought of was, "I can't see his knees!" and then I thought,"show some skin!"
I'm so glad that he is doing better. I was stalking daily for this report. Who am I kidding? I'm gunna stalk you either way.
