Images from 2012: Finished physical therapy and 100% mobility returned.
Updates: First cast removed and second applied
IReally hate being in a wheelchair, but I can't allow pressure on the leg or the repaired tendons could snap.
I have to sleep on the couch because I can't go up the stairs. Nice couch, but this is getting old fast. I can't stand not being mobile. Decided to turn in my notice with Home Depot. Between the medications, the wheelchair, sleeping on a couch and then months of physical therapy to look forward to, I decided it would be best for me to leave and start back to work again after I have healed. It wouldn't be fair to them either for me to go on disability and continue to be short staffed while I was out. They did offer though, which was nice. Also, both of my bosses left the company just since I started there. That worried me a bit.
