I saw the orthopedic specialist yesterday afternoon, and as expected, he said that I have recovered from the broken leg and I can resume my regular activities “as tolerated.” Woo-hoo!!!
At the close of his examination, he turned to me and said, “wear sneakers for the next few months.” Yeah, right.
I said, “really, why?”
He said, “you will still have some swelling, so the sneakers can expand to accommodate it.”
He didn’t know what to say. He just smiled and said, “sneakers will be fine. You won’t be able to wear boots for a while.”
Little does he know. I’ve already been wearing boots for three weeks. I have choices of boots that can accommodate the minor swelling that I have and do not cause me any discomfort. So to heck with the sneakers: “resume normal activities as tolerated” means, to me, wearing boots. That’s that.
Now, to work on carving down that huge list of “gotta-dos!” then get out a ride!
Life is short: wear your boots!
