A Farewell To My “All Terrain” Immobility Boot

I am so ready to kiss this boot goodbye and hope to never ever see it attached to my leg again. I have been immobilized for 6 weeks. The first 4 weeks with no extra activity allowed and the last two with whatever I wished to do as long as the boot was on according to my doctor. From red light to green light I wasted no time.

I have worked the entire time.

I even had to repair my boot since apparently it is not made for all terrain activities. After hiking and disc golf even my boot needed a little TLC.

A few hours of drying time and it was as good as new.

As of today, I will remove this boot, store it in the back of a closet somewhere and return to life as I knew it weeks ago. I have learned that with age comes moderation. Whether I like it or not my body is not what it once was and I need to treat it with a little more loving care than I have been. That being said, I will not stop doing what I love to do. I will just do it slower and with a little more care involved. My motto is and will always be
