The foot doctor says I ought to have a cast on my sore foot, or at least a knee high "equalizer" that will keep it immobile while it heals. The equalizer cost over 120.00 dollars so, no, I can't do that. So I'm back to considering a cast. I skipped over this cute phase of childhood, and as an adult it doesn't seem quite so cool. I can't do it if I'll need crutches--I would fall down my stairs trying to get back and forth from my apartment. I'm going to ask more about it today, now that I know my insurance won't pay for the equalizer.
