The doctor had hoped we could remove my splint today, but no. The break is at the bottom of the picture, at the base of my small toe and as anybody can see, it has some mending to do yet. We are to go back in two weeks.
Meanwhile, Leonidas said my bandages were ugly, and I decided he was right. So I knitted a big sock from a Christmas stocking pattern but custom-fitted, to cover the splint and bandages. The sock keeps the splint clean and in place. (Sleeping in bed was causing the bandages to slip and loosen.)
Meanwhile, Demetrios has been a saint, never once complaining of having to do the housework - and, I venture to say, getting quite a education from it. I feel bad he has to do at least two more weeks of it, though.
I am more mobile than I used to be, on account of having learned quite well how to use my little rolling chair, and on account of hurting much less than I did at first.
