Good news: I had a check up at the doctor today, and she said I don’t have to wear the mega-clunky boot anymore! Instead, I’m downgraded to a brace.

It’s progress. Now I just have to wear this clumsy thing for a month, and as long as there is no relapse, I’ll be free before Christmas.

    Congratulations on your progress.

    Doesn’t look very practical for outdoors Minnesota in the winter though.
    Do they have a snow proof overboot to go with that?

    “Where am I?”

    “In the clunky boot.”

    “Who are you?”

    “I’m the doctor (not the one with the Tardis). You have a brace.”

    “I am not a brace, I am a free man!”

    “Ha ha ha ha…”

    “Fine. Now I will look as a completely normal hoo-man. I mean person. A completely normal human person without features that might make people look twice. Not that I have any reason to worry about people scrutinising me at all.”

    “I am not a brace, there is only one of me”
    What big feet you have Doc? We all know what that means .

    As mentioned by raven, not the most practical for snowy weather. Not as bad as my cane though, which I prechill before venturing out in ice and snow.
