Well, we spent lovely morning on Monday with the x-ray technician and a lovely morning this morning with the orthopedic surgeon. The good news is that the rickster is getting a longer leash! He'll probably still feel a bit too tethered to me, but at least he'll get a chance to make a little mischief.
Stationary trainer = YES
Driving = YES (if supervised at first and in-town to start)
Weaning off crutches = YES (starting with one on the left and moving to none as he chooses)
Travel = YES (in late October - Hawaii, here we come!)
Cycling on the road = NO (Maybe in time for Thanksgiving, though!)
Meanwhile, in other news....
We're planning to take the momma and papa to Quebec next Sept. to ride the "Route Verte" for her 60th b-day - just in time to see the fall colors. The "Route Verte" guide just came today so we can start strategizing. Also, the route was just named by National Geographic as the best cycling trail in the world. So, I'm getting pretty excited about it.
