    Update. Saw the doctor yesterday. Hubby is authorized to gradually increase weight bearing on the broken leg as tolerated and go to one crutch. He says he doesn't have pain when he walks on it.

    Oh, and the doc says he can start to drive as he feels comfortable with it.

    Looks like we are through the worst of it. Thanks everyone, for your kind support and suggestions to help us through this situation.

    Taking Care of the Care Giver

    Now that you appear to be nearer to the end of the challenge than to the beginning I thought you might be ready for another bit of advice on taking care of you instead of the patient..............

    Now that he is almost up an starting to get around again. May I suggest that he starts working out in a pool? I joined a exercise class at our local APEX center (indoor pool,weight room etc) several weeks ago working out in the water and it has done wonders for this hip replacement and back injury sustained on way to rally last summer. I can just get my leg over a RT at the dealer now but they won't let me test ride yet!

    I guess a status update is due. Jan rode the stationary bike to maintain range of motion and to generally avoid losing muscle mass as the leg healed. This week, he has begun some short (10 minute) walks on the treadmill. The first one made his leg sore, but he has kept it up and this exercise has improved his gait significantly. He took his first motorcycle ride since the fracture MLK week-end in Death Valley N.P. We trailered the bikes down (last year it was really (13F!) cold leaving and returning to/from SLC on the bikes).

    It looks like he will be just fine for riding season. So, all is good. Thanks again everybody, for your suggestions and tips they were much appreciated.
