Foot Loose and Fancy Free

I unwrapped my foot this morning and got a shower, no plastic wrap included, and got to wash my foot for the first time in 11 days. That sure felt great! I am not supposed to put a lot of weight on it unless it is bandaged, because the bandage helps keep the foot tight while the severed ligament heals. So I was standing gingerly in the shower with my full foot in contact with the shower floor, and if felt like I were stepping on something, I guess because of the swelling.

As you can see, it is healing. Some of the discoloration is due to swelling and bruising, and some is due to the iodine that they painted my foot with. I am leaving the wrap off for a little while and using crutches during that time. It feels good to feel the air on my foot. But soon enough, a new wrap goes back on until tomorrow’s shower, and I will no longer be foot loose and fancy free.
