Ok, so we bring Mom home from getting her cast off at the MD.'s office yesterday, and she stubs her L GR toe hard into the rise on the step. She needs that side of her body as it is compensating for the jacked-up R side. She says she thinks she might have broken it, but no, this morning, it is sore, but tolerable. It isn't broken and she can still cruise around in her speed-mobile chair and get up to the counter to accomplish various wheelchair ineffecient tasks, such as doing dishes, eating, laundry, etc. Whew, that's a relief! The good news is that she got the cast off of her RUE today, and she only has a brace. She is ecstatic to be able to wash her arm in a manner to which it is accustomed. Maybe in 5 weeks, the RLE will be ready for PT and some weight bearing, minus any stool-stepping; she is banned!
