      How is Martha doing?  How are YOU doing?

      She has her post-surgery follow-up today, they are going to remove the cast and staples, then decide whether a new cast is in order or a support boot.  Still isnt supposed to be putting any weight on it for another four weeks.  Then probably some PT.  We're all pretty worn out here.

      Thanks for the update - and wishes for a speedy recovery.  

      If she's going to put her weight on it, you will want to make sure that she gets a shoe balancer for the other foot.   It goes over any shoe, but it really helps to keep your hips from developing problems.

      Thanks all.  Cast is off, stitches and staples are out.  Its back tightly wrapped and she has a removable air boot on it.  Still no weight bearing, but another followup next Friday.

      sounds good!

      but stay patient. if broken at or near an articulation that takes time.

      the last time i fell from a horse, i went for weeks on crutches and for (too many) months with a walking stick.

      Quick update. Martha's ankle is healing nicely, and she's starting weight-bearing on it with the assistance of an ankle brace and crutches.  I'm getting a bit more time to work on the new site (I'll post photos and information in that thread when I have a bit of time)
