Brooke and I went to the doctor's office today. The wound is shrinking every day. The picture above was taken Monday night. This afternoon, it was even smaller. This is my last week on the wound vacuum. I go back in next week to have a skin graft.
I asked The Closer what he thought about the fibula fracture gap that hasn't healed since the injury. He said it isn't time to worry yet. He expects it to heal, and if it doesn't, we'll have another operation to fill the gap with bone graft.
We received news today that I can now bear all of my weight on my ankle -- as pain tolerates. So as soon as we got home, I decided to start walking without crutches.
Three months almost to the day. I'm finally walking.
It's about time.
