Free at last!

Well, at least for 9 hours ...

I had a good report from the orthodoc yesterday!  While still in the boot during the day, I can put more weight on my right foot now and remove the boot to sleep at night.  No driving, though.

It felt so weird without that lead weight at the end of my appendage; I tingled in places I didn't know I had!  I worked on flexing the foot up and down but haven't had the courage to work the ankle side to side, yet.

Mr. Hillside and I have made great progress packing boxes this week so I think I can break out the sewing machine without guilt today.  I need to finish up my mystery blocks before the big reveal on Monday!


  1. So glad to hear that you are healing well. You should definitely get in some good stitching time in celebration.

  2. Yay! It’s great news that you are healing and moving forward. I need to get my blocks finished so I’m ready for the big reveal! Happy sewing!

  3. Actually your "perch" looks pretty comfy Libby and isn't it great that you are healing. Our bodies are amazing really.
    Wonderful to see those perfect mystery blocks too. Happy Packing!

  4. So glad to hear that you're improving! It must feel wonderful to wiggle that foot. Can't wait till Monday to see the CORRECT layout :)

  5. So glad to hear your ankle's healing well. Looking forward to your mystery reveal Monday!

  6. I know what a relief it is to sleep without the boot (been there, done that). You absolutely should be sewing! Have a wonderful day!
