Thanks so much Nicky! Nice to hear from you.
Had my appointment yesterday and I think things went pretty well. I plan on writing a "proper post" updating everyone on it very soon, but wanted to respond to your's first.
How have things been going with your leg? I remember reading that you were considering getting the hardware removed from your surgery. Did you decide to? If so, how did it go? I certainly hope everything went fine and you are feeling better:) . It's been a long road for you and I pray you're COMPLETELY healed as soon as possible:):)
I'm feeling pretty good this morning as I am FINALLY able to bend my knee!!! Yup, you heard it first!! The full leg cast is gone!! I'm finally into a short cast and it mentally feels like I've won the lottery! Lol. Doctor said everything looks good and she is sufficiently pleased with the amount of bone growth on my tibia to downgrade me to a below the knee cast. It's a little embarrassing, but I almost cried. Lol. Still needing crutches, but at this point I don't care! I can move my knee! :):):):)
