For sanity sake, I gave my crutches the boot. I found it impossible to accomplish anything with both of my hands tied up. Making my coffee and then balancing on one leg in the kitchen until the cup was finished seemed counterproductive to the healing process. Additionally, the large and energetic puppy posed a real safety issue.
Although I would still be weight bearing, I reasoned that my boot would provide the immobilization that my ankle needed. It also feels satisfying to get another use out of it, thereby getting my money’s worth from the investment. Note: By no means does this mean that I want another reason to use it after this; I can do without ANOTHER injury.
After a day off of work, I am back in the office. I am currently working (or was working) in my office doing a little desk yoga; my foot is propped up on a cushion on top of my desk. It is nice to be flexible.
