Erin slept late this morning saying that she was recovering from yesterday’s busy day. I am always glad that she is asleep when I get up.
She says walking is much easier with the cast. She walked around her room a lot, packing to go back to Davis, etc. The purpose of a series of casts is to stretch the muscles in the foot, so that she flexes the foot more when she walks, rather than plunking it down. There will be a series of 2 or 3 plaster casts before the permanent brace.
She can’t get the cast wet, so when she took a shower, she first had a trash compactor bag over the cast fastened with the tie plus rubber bands. Then, there was another black larger trash bag fastened similary. The outer bag got water in it, but fortunately, the cast stayed dry, but I don’t think she will risk that again.
Clark got the TV fixed in her room, so she was happy.
Cindy came at 6:15 pm to take her back to Davis, and I took a 2 hour nap!
