The new cast....

... is pink and coming off tomorrow. The idea was to make sure my foot and ankle are at a 90 degree angle... somehow it became rather loose. Between gravity and everyday movement on my part... my ankle slips right out of the position that Dr. Lang and Robin want me to be in. So my dad drew the short straw and he will be driving me back to Madison again tomorrow.

Now for the good news! Swelling is down, my leg is no longer funny colors, incisions look great and I am on the road to having a boot sometime near December 15th ... and maybe a little weight bearing after that. Merry Christmas!


  1. Hey Sarah
    Hope all is well. What a journey you've had. I imagine you will be very happy to get your boot and start to walk again.

    Pat and I wish you a very happy turkey day. Please let us know if you need anything.


  2. Hey, we miss you at the "bunker"! Can't wait to hear what color your new cast is. I think HellCat had a great idea -- decorate your cast with rhinestones. If you send me your parents address, more decorations will be yours :)

    Take care lady,
