Well, more of a walking cast for Marti.
Our visit to the orthopedic doctor resulted in positive news for Marti's broken ankle. It is healing well and now she can shed the wheelchair she's been scooting around her office building in for crutches.
The best part is she is to start putting some weight on her ankle, a little more each day until she can put all her weight on her foot. Of course, she has her inflatable walking cast to support the bones as they knit, but it's all good.
The doctor said she will have to continue to wear the cast for the next six or so weeks, which puts us right into our Disney World trip in the Journey. Marti won't be able to walk all day in the cast around the Magic Kingdom or the other Disney parks, so we will rent a wheel chair to push her around. She'll be able to get out of the wheelchair and walk on the rides.
When our daughter Heather heard the good prognosis and the need for a wheel chair she was very happy, but we're not sure she was more glad that Marti's ankle is healing well or with a wheel chair at Disney World, you get to go to the front of the lines waiting for the rides. ;c)
We're glad things are looking up and Marti will be in Dancing with the Stars in no time.
Now where does one sign an inflatable cast?
