Week 11: Holy Snow, New England!

All week we've been seeing some serious snow. Monday we had snow, today we have a shit ton of snow and this weekend we are expecting even more snow. -_- 
So yea its been snowing A LOT. I know that we're not alone and a lot of people all over the country are battling this storm, I feel your pain. 

But, I have AMAZING NEWS! Monday this week I had PT and practiced walking unaided and I was able to do it! So now at home I don't use my crutch or boot. The only time I pick up my crutch is at the end of the night because I'm tired and my ankle hurts or because I'm heading outside. I'm still uncomfortable to head outside right now without my boot and crutch because of the snow and ice but as soon as it's all gone so it my boot and crutch.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but my scars around my knee and the bruise around wound are starting to go down a bit. The scars from the screw insertion seem the same though.

Also, thanks to PT and some exercises I do at home like the one with the band in the picture I believe the atrophy of the muscles in my left leg have stopped and I am now even building back some muscle.

I feel amazing. I know that I still have about four more months until I am potentially fully recovered but in almost three I have come a long way. I mean I cannot believe that I am full weight bearing without my boot and crutch already. Part of me thought this day would never come. 

11 weeks down.
