This was true: by about 3:00 pm today the female DG had had it. It’s not that she was in pain. Everything just felt achy and heavy, and she was starting to wonder if she really would be able to take a step when she stood up. (She could.) By the time she got home a couple of hours later, the idea of the “clunker” (hideously ugly walking boot) sounded good. But in some kind of ironical delight, when she put it on, it really didn’t make things better – although getting up and down the two steps to the patio was probably done with more confidence. What she really needs is to get this leg up…soon!
