Foot Brace

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Foot Brace

Post by LDUBS »

Man oh man. I have to wear one of these things pictured below on my right foot for the next 4 weeks. I’m supposed to wear it 24/7, including to bed. I am supposed to take it off only for showers.

The week after this thing comes off, Mrs. Ldubs officially retires and I’m taking her on a big two-week trip. So, it is fairly important that I toe the line and heal up before the trip. (Hmmm. Foot brace + “toe” the line + “heal (heel)” up. Get it? Aww, never mind.)

Doc says I can’t get it wet. I asked him about what if it rains really, really hard (meaning how about when I go out on the boat). He says stay inside, buy a cover for it, or use a big garbage bag. Big garbage bag works for me.

The reason why I have to wear it isn’t important. There are some sunny days coming up in the forecasts which will be perfect for some winter trout fishing. The issue is how do I fool Mrs. Ldubs into thinking I hooked up the trailer, drove to the lake, launched, and etcetera all without taking this thing off.

I’m probably toast, but still thinking.

Now, 'Dubs......you know better. Stay home, let the fish grow a bit more. They'll be there when you get back from the celebratory vacation. You mess around too much, and the damage could become permanent.

Just sayin'.....Roger

Seriously, my son who is just 25 had his hip replaced, I know the restrictions are a PITA, stay well.

And to all Merry Christmas! and have a joyful holiday season.

Oh man BCBouy, my issue is kind of just a big nuisance. You get well soon.
