The cast is off. I now have a walking cast, which looks something like what Neil Armstrong wore on the moon. It certainly would be much easier to walk in it with reduced gravity. Regardless, I am just happy to be able to move without crutches.

Right now as I type this post I have the "boot" off. My leg, which has shrunk to the size of my arm, fills naked and exposed. It's almost like that gazelle in the nature specials that is separated from its herd and susceptible to harm. Entire layers of skin are randomly coming off- kind of gross.

Still, this is a pretty major step in my recovery and I feel very blessed to have come this far.
