OK, I'm getting the hang of this Air Cast boot. Adjusted it better this morning and, for the most part, have been on my feet all day. I have a problem just languishing in bed or staying seated for any length of time. NOT my thing! Besides, too much to do to let this thing hamper me or slow the pace that much.

I also found out that there's no need to remove the cast to drive. I had no problems driving with it on today. Wasn't awkward at all. Maybe it's my vehicle. Don't know; just know it's MUCH more convenient to keep it on instead of taking it off and on while running errands!!

The foot did start aching and the cast rubbing toward the end of the afternoon. I discovered that resting a few minutes, loosening the boot, then readjusting and moving around again helped tremendously!

So, I can live with this for 6 to 8 weeks! In the grand scheme of things it's VERY minor!! As my sister reminded me, I could be in a plaster cast!!! YIKES!!! Now that would REALLY suck!!

I hope no one ticks me off that much. I could do some serious damage with this thing! :)

I should have known you'd be trying to figure out a way to outsmart that boot.

Still, Pammie, you do need to keep that foot up some and TRY to force yourself to relax more until this thing heals, you hard-headed Texan!! Take care!

I'm glad you've adjusted to the boot. That really would be a pain if you had to take it on and off with every errand you ran in the car.

I agree with Marion, though... you DO need to rest SOME!

Glad you came back and added the photo!
