This week was little better. The immobilizer was removed from my right leg and changed to a hinged brace (a lot smaller and more comfortable). However, still have to use crutches and can not put weight on the right leg. I got to see the knee at the doctor's office and it looks good and healing well. I am learning how to move around more on one leg, but it is still NOT EASY. I am starting to get braver/better going up and down the stairs, but not too often. Each day seems to get better. Thanks to the many well wishers....
