So he fitted Marti with a special inflatable boot instead of the old fashioned casts.
The boot is pretty high tech, with a little pump to inflate a cushion tightly around her ankle. Unfortunately, she cannot walk on it and still has to use her hated crutches.
She spent all day working remotely, along with hours on the phone. This evening her assistant, Brittney brought over a stack of paperwork for Marti to work on and a special item...a wheelchair so Marti can get around the downstairs without her crutches.
The doctor wanted Marti to stay out of work for two weeks, but that's not possible. Reluctantly, he okayed Marti to go back on Thursday. He cautioned her to be careful, not to push it and to be very aware of icy conditions. He teased Marti and said if she falls and breaks a hip, he's going to call her a klutz and laugh really hard.
Marti's staff will watch out for her, I have no worries, they are a good bunch of folks.
So the mending begins. In six to eight weeks, if everything goes right, maybe we'll see Marti on "Dancing With the Stars". ;c)
