Isn't this the goofiest thing you've ever seen? It's called a Knee Walker and you put your bad leg on the pad and then you scoot yourself around like a big dork.
When Bill and I went out for dinner on Saturday I tried it out for the first time and I have to tell you, it's not that easy to use. Hit a little bump in the pavement and you're likely to go flying. And it's hell on the knee. I kept feeling as if I should switch off legs so as not to get too tired but of course that wouldn't work. Bill said EVERY SINGLE PERSON I passed turned around to look at me. They were probably thinking, WTF???
Well, I tried it again yesterday, almost 2 miles round trip, and you know what? It seems kind of stupid. It's not all that stable, it hurts my knee and it's tiring. I'm going back to the crutches which I've gotten used to and can now move pretty efficiently. Besides, the foot's getting better every day. Won't be long before I'm back out there running!
