Next Steps for Jake

Today Jake traded in that snazzy green and blue cast for a boot.
 He'll still be using his scooter or crutches most of the time for the next two weeks, but he can begin to do a bit of weight bearing on that ankle, and best of all, he can take the boot off to shower and to sleep at night.
He begins physical therapy next week and walking should come soon after that, and then perhaps driving too.  He is ready to get his life back.

    1. Time will tell. I know he doesn't want to give up playing soccer. He should have a full recovery in time.

  4. For an active young person, being restricted is a pain. It's good to see that progress is being made.

  8. It is especially hard when you can't drive. David is glad his right knee wasn't the one operated on, so he can still drive.

  9. This has really been a long recovery and I hope he is really close to the finish line. Being able to bathe and sleep unencumbered has to really help the moral.

  10. Gosh, I'm glad he's coming along so well and, to echo the other comments, it sure has been a while since it happened and he's got a ways to go. But now he can at least shower and sleep without the encumbrance.

  13. I'm sure Jake feels this is a long summer, while many of us feel it has been incredibly short! Hope the healing continues smoothly and rapidly.
