The Dual Gs had so many ‘to dos’ today that they broke they’re [new] normal Saturday routine of going on an outing in the morning. One reason, from the female DG’s point of view, is that her heel/tendon had been barking since she got the new hideously-ugly-and-bulky walking boot a couple of days ago. She’d been warned that there might be an adjustment – and indeed there was.
But for anyone else who’s transitioning from a cast to boot post Achilles tendon surgeon, here’s the good news – no more pain today. And she feeling more confident navigating on the more rolling boot bottom. (Why the boot makes it harder for someone who’s already being challenged at walking is something she’ll be asking her surgeon next time she sees him.)
All of this leads up to the event of the DGs’ day – a visit from Grace and her parents, who were good enough to make the trip across the Bay to add instant cheer. For the first time this summer everyone met out at Mike’s Cafe in the Ladera Shopping Center where there is lots to see and do even for a toddler. And yes, the DGs enjoyed every Grace-filled moment.
