Got my staples out this morning. 0/10. Do not recommend. But at least they’re out now. My skin isn’t itchy anymore! And I can walk––very slowly––on both feet! Doc says I can even stand up to take showers again. My foot is still swollen like crazy, but that’ll go down as I work the muscles. So that bed rest really paid off (thank goodness). It almost doesn’t feel real that I have the splint off and can walk again! Unfortunately for me, I won’t be able to ride until probably May, but I can at least go to the barn and hang with the horses and everyone.
