One week on crutches

I have now reached seven days on crutches. I've been pleasantly surprised by the attitude of Joe Public in letting me sit down on public transport and giving me a wide berth when I have needed it.

I've found some daily tasks almost impossible. Getting food or drink for myself doesn't happen. carrying a plate of food with crutches? I've been horrified when I've been set up for work then lose my pen in the couch. That requires me to move and that isn't good.

I've made some progress. I'm not in acute pain and much of the swelling has gone, though much of the feeling in my foot is yet to return.

Bring on two months time, though I hope to be able to walk again before then.
