... HikerDreams, It so good to hear from you. I don't think you should put any more pressure on your foot than you feel comfortable with. You just got your cast off and your foot will take time to finish healing. You have a boot and an air brace because you can't just walk on your foot alone yet. PWB means partial, and that is something you build up on. I would suggest... (120 replies)
... Good morning Dancing Cat, Thank you for the welcome. It's been very helpful reading all the posts on this site. Everyone has been so willing to tell their stories! And some have been quite funny, others quite frightening. Still, I have enjoyed the information and the tales along the way. I have only been to London once, in 1986, for about a week and loved it. My... (120 replies)

... Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated. It has been a long 9 - 10 months but I am hardcore in mindset with the occasional moment of frustration. I look at the situation and think that some downtime now is well worth it when compared to a potential of accommodating this situation for a lifetime. (50 replies)

... Thanks for the replys to my post. I must say, initially I was a little surprised at first by the responses, but after considering what all was written I made several calls to find a pt that will work with me. And I found one the came highly recommended that will do sessions for $65/day. I thought that was very fair. I neglected to add that I myself am a licensed massage... (6 replies)
