Freedom at last!

After 8 long weeks of no driving, being at the mercy of great family and friends, I self diagnosed that the boot has to come off, legal or not (by the Dr.), I drove today to my favorite place, TARGET. Carson thought it was so great that I was driving, and he didn't complain about the popcorn either! I actually got to use my double stroller that has been in the back of my car. Let's hope tomorrow at my Dr. appointment that he will give the approval, cuz I am done, Oh to wear matching shoes again. I know it will be a long recovery to normalcy, but every step is amazing. I really have taken for granted simple every day things like walking!

Yea! It is funny how much you appreciate the simple act of walking after it is taken away.

Good for you! I am not in a cast and would love to have gone to Target with you! This place called Pinetop needs a Target!

Look at the bright side of wearing a boot/cast. You never had to worry about accidentally wearing mismatched shoes!!

Woo hoo! I am so happy for you Lindsey! I'm sure it was AMAZING to be able to wear TWO regular shoes and drive again too -- especially to your favorite store!!! You have had such a great attitude about everything! You amaze me! I hope you will continue to heal well the rest of the way and that all goes well at your dr. appointment today too. :o)
