Day Three

Whoops, forgot to post an update yesterday so I'll just do a double today. Or perpetually be a day behind.

Yesterday I think I started to make a turn for the better. I'm still walking on crutches and all that, but getting around just seems a little easier. I was even able to take a shower yesterday, after wrapping my leg in a garbage bag and doing whatever possible to seal it shut. Ever since then, the gauss/ace wrap on my leg has been wanting to slip down; I guess it got a little saturated.

Nothing else big going on. Just doing what the doctor says to do and sleeping a lot.

Glad to hear things are improving!

Do you know how long you're going to have a cast on? If it's a while it may be worth it to get this: I used it the last time I had a cast, it's basically a wetsuit for the leg. It worked really well but I see the prices have gone up so you might just want to keep with the garbage bag unless you'll be in a cast for a long time.

With the garbage bag I always found it easier to prop my leg up on the tub to bathe and then washed my hair in the sink. :P
