I went and got my cast off today and saw the stump for the first time. It was very surreal and I cried for about a minute. The nurses and everyone gave me a minute to collect myself and then we took the stitches out. I actually cleaned it up the first time by myself. I also got to feel the bottom of it and everything. I know have the foot and cast back on and I can bear about 30 pounds of my body weight on it. By the time we were ready to start putting the cast on, I was waving it at my cousin and my nurse. Felt good to laugh and ease that emotional strain. I go back the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and get this cast off and I'll get a two part removable leg. It will still be stiff kneed, but I can take it off to shower and sleep. I feel so much better that it has healed so good. I was so worried about the MRSA, and that whole nightmare. One week of antibiotics and I'm free from all of that. soon, no pain meds, no antibiotics, and I'll be free to shower. There is a God!
