Medical Walking Boot May Be Gone...

Monday, August 05, 2013

When I'm at home I walk bare foot... when I leave the house and I'm going to be on my feet alot I was wearing the boot. I've worn the boot for the last 2 weeks faithfully. My foot has been feeling pretty good while at home, so this weekend I tried walking in normal shoes. As long as I took to walking long distance slow and focused, foot felt pretty good. I used KT Tape yesterday while at church, seems to help some with the pressure of the shoes I was wearing. I am trying NOT to wear flip flops, which is hard.

Today I am going to try out an easy walking dvd to see how it goes... no jumping jacks nor running yet... taking it slow, but need to do something. Going to start some calisthenics too... and the stretches the doctor suggested.

Summer activities came to a close this weekend for Church Youth Group... making new reachable goals... getting things ready to start teaching again in September... Re-organized Children's Ministry program... God is opening doors & the ideas are flowing...

    We are both making progress. I walked a lot at school this week. I started the week off, (first day) with a walker, and by Friday, I did not use it. That is real progress.

    Keep up the great work, Courtney. emoticon emoticon

    Glad you are doing better! I had to wear a boot for 6 months once, and the ankle actually took me 2 years to strengthening back up, hope your injury heals completely super fast!!!! Sounds like you are doing what you need to by taking it slowly! :)
