Rejoice with us!

We have had good news today from the orthopedist. Demetrios' foot is making wonderful progress, so we no longer need worry about having surgery on it. In fact, the progress is so good that the cast is off now, and he has been given a "shoe" instead. It has a steel-plated sole, so it distributes his weight evenly over the whole foot, without bending.

He still has to walk leaning on a cane or crutch or his walker, so as not to put full weight on the foot. Not that it's painful; it never has been; but to help it heal faster. He still has to stay off his foot a lot, to pamper it. But he can walk, and that makes a huge difference! He can go more places more often and do more things.

The doctor says it may take 7 more weeks to heal completely (for a grand total of 16) but meanwhile, we are rejoicing in Demetrios' new, relative freedom!
