Hello ladies....and thank you for asking about me. been busy doing nothing and trying to catch up here. ok, at 4 months and 2 days from when the day i had the TKE, i felt really good that day! first day that i was pain free and able to walk without a cane. Mr Mac was visiting his parents out of state and due back home in 2 days. Since i felt so much better, decided to clean the hardwood floor in the dining room. (up to this point, he did all the housework for us) i have an oak dining table with the pedestal and the 4 legs that come out from it. was cleaning the space between them and moved my left foot into that hard wood pain was soaring in my foot. watched it swell and turn blue over night. went to ortho doc the next day, had xrays have 3 breaks #5 toe and side and top of foot. he also xrayed the knee in case i hit the front of the knee when i fell down. (knee is fine) go back end of september for recheck and xrays again. leave for orlando two days later..... he told me 4-6 weeks and i should be fine with the foot and no more boot. at this point, the foot aches and hope it improves soon. if not, i rent a scooter for vacation. i had not planned to tell Mr Mac i broke the foot as i wanted him to spend more time with his elderly parents. ended up telling him and he drove 13 hours to get back home.... lmp, that is great news! you'll hit F & W which is one of my favorite things to do maybe your ds will change his mind and eat at France.... hope your rib pains cease soon and you get a break from your health issues... enjoy your vacation later this month! christine, hope all going fine for you.
