I so feel like myself again! I told you guys I would keep you apprised of my recuperation. Well, the stitches are out and the cane is in the basement, collecting dust, where it belongs. The doctor says I lost about 30% of the strength in my leg but that I will get it back very quickly. I can start running, although not long distances, in about a month. I'm very happily walking all over Brooklyn now with my dogs and my Ipod, and start physical therapy today. I need to go buy a new pair of sneakers, some ankle weights, and a stationary bike since mine bit the dust a couple years ago.
