I don't do well with crutches and I'm not very coordinated to begin with. Thank goodness by Tuesday afternoon I was off crutches and in a walking boot after seeing the podiatrist. Rob was pretty happy about not having to carry my purse around anymore. I could do almost everything but drive. The boot doesn't fit between the brake and center consul. With lots of ibuprofen, ice, and the boot over two weeks the foot is almost back to normal. I go to the doctor's on Tuesday for one last check, but I'm expecting a good report.
I didn't ride for the first week of the boot and only twice the second week. That was horrendous! Kira rode Tyler almost daily on the flat. She worked him and he felt amazing when I rode on Thursday. Charles rode Tyler last Friday over fences. I missed it due to work, but I heard it was a battle. Tyler refused to participate, but Charles finally got through to him. Yesterday, a week later, Charles warmed Tyler up and showed me what our rides should and could be like. What a difference! Tyler remembered everything Charles taught him last week and we had a great ride. I hadn't jumped in 2 weeks and it was easy and fun! Jumping Tyler is never easy, but always fun. I really appreciated it.
The boot. It's better than crutches, but miserable in humidity.
