6 weeks down...

It's been 6 weeks almost to the minute since the injury, but it feels like it's been about 6 months.

Em said the other day it feels like it's gone really quick, but for me it feels like it's been forever. You know how time seems to go quicker when you're busy? I've spent around 4 days a week for the last month and a half on the couch, so time has been going really slowly for me. :/

I have my first checkup on Tuesday, so I'll get a better idea of how much longer I'll be stuck in the boot for. It can't be soon enough though. I'm at the stage where it's feeling pretty good so it feels like the boot isn't necessary any more, so it feels like it's just being nothing but a nuisance.

I take the boot off from time to time to air my foot out and what not, and my leg muscles are depressing me quite a lot. It's insane how much smaller the right calf is so than the left. Here's a photo:

So after the boot comes off (or maybe before?) I'll have lots of work ahead of me to recondition those muscles. If not I'll be walking in circles for a while :/

I'm sure you'll be your old buff self again in no time. :-)
