Today is the first follow-up visit to the orthopedic doctor that works at the hospital where my surgery took place.
And I received my first set of hospital bills today. I am pleased to say I overestimated my total costs at around $100K but it came to a paltry $26K. No problem. Let me just run to the bank and take that out of my nearly empty bank account. I can be sure than when all the physical therapy is completed the total will be closer to my guesstimation.
Stitches came out and this is actually the first time I saw the incisions in both sides of my ankle. Not pretty at all, but somehow not as nasty as I had imagined. Once they all looked me over, they recasted me in a fiberglass cast and once again the foot and lower leg were immobilized.
I am going to remove the weight and mileage counters on the front page of the blog. You can be sure I will replace them once I am physically able to walk, and then run, again. I am not sure where my weight is because my scale requires me to stand with both feet on the surface. My appetite has been rather low, but my calorie expenditure has also been low. Looking to start moving more soon and becoming a participant in my own life once again.
