Yup, that means *I* drove the car!
AND we walked a little!
I went in on Wednesday morning, not sure what I would end up with. The doctor I had seen in September mentioned something about a walking cast or some kind of boot, so I thought I would probably not be done with the medical accoutrements-- and possibly not done with needing chauffeur service.
However, on Wednesday, the doctor checked my foot, prodded it to see if there was pain and then pronounced me ready to go. He said that I can't do high-impact sports for another couple of weeks (so still no trails), but that biking, swimming and even the elliptical trainer at the gym were all perfectly acceptable, AND that driving was fine. I don't even need any special shoe-- I can wear running shoes with my orthotics and that's enough support for my foot at this point.
Obviously, this made me very, very happy.
It made Neko happy too.... I think we're friends again...
