Swimming in a week?

I had a visit with the surgeon on Tuesday, where he removed a large chunk of useless flesh. It's all good though, my toe had mostly grown back underneath. It doesn't look nearly as gruesome as before, my toe now kinda looks like a hot dog wiener that was left in the microwave too long.

The good thing is that I'm 100% healthy and virtually pain free. I can put weight on the foot no problem. I've been walking for a couple of days now too. Because, I have been babying the foot so long, it's hard for me to walk properly. I'm still limping -- I'll have to learn how to walk normally again.

No running yet, but I might be able to hit the pool in a week, as long as my toe heals up enough. Good times!

Thanks for the well-wishes.
