Millimeter-stones

Inside ankle

Inside of ankle…no tips from surgical team on skin care….

Today is seven weeks from surgery.

Two days ago I began to get my toes prepared to walk again…toes are important to walking/the gait, especially the hallux (aka big toe). My toe awakening is beginning with mostly manual manipulation, and a teensy bit of me actively moving them—teensy because the brain is slow to catch on.

I see the surgeon next in two weeks.

BTW, the bill for the surgery/followup is already in excess of $30K, almost all of which (so far), insurance is paying. BIG yay for the ACA.

Also, millimeter-stones are metric milestones.
