The foot is healing nicely, and I almost don't need the cane! I'll probably still carry it for a while, because it's so easy to think one is done needing it just because one is restless and impatient and wanting to rush the healing.
The silly thing about the cane and this surgery? It's on the other leg from the hip surgery. So my recent cane habits are all backwards. On the other hand, it's on the same leg that was catastrophically broken when I was five, so those habits are coming back. Given all this, it's like I have cane dyslexia part of the time, and I'm sure I look a little goofy when I first stand up and have to figure out which hand is supposed to be holding the darn quad-cane today.
One week to regular shoes. One week left of being very careful, not overdoing, and elevating the leg frequently. One week. I can do this.
