I must avoid non-flat surfaces. Leaf raking and blowing is dangerous: you never know when you are going to step on some uneven ground. Snow and icy sidewalks may well be a problem soon.
For the first time I can actually feel the calcaneal osteotomy. The base of the foot feels triangular and much more stable, which was the idea, of course.
My six month handicap tags have expired, and I feel no justification to renew. I can walk across the parking lot just fine. It was very useful for a while, and I am grateful. It still hurts a lot to stand in one place for a few minutes: it would be nice if supermarkets had a handicapped line. I lean on things a lot.
