Cast Off -- Brace On

After 4 amazingly long weeks, I got my cast off today! The doc is very happy with my progress and says the fracture is healing nicely. I still have 4 more weeks in the brace before I am healed enough to resume normal life (like lift or carry heavier items). Than it will be an additional 4 weeks after that before I can rollerskate, lift weights or do push-ups. I won't regain pre-injury mobility for about 6 months.

I was really surprised at how much my skin shed. Yuck!

They asked if I wanted it, I told them to burn it!

 The removable brace...how I love thee!
