I sprained my ankle. Well, that was the conclusion after the xrays, the bloodwork, and ultrasound to rule out DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) all proved negative. [Roll Eyes] At any rate, before I even dashed off to the Michigan Heart and Vascular Center, I was fitted with my new best friend, an FP Walker Aircast. Actually I hate the thing, but I just had to show it off. [Wink]

clicky, click click

See that little valve at the back under the middle strap? There's one on each side and I can inflate or deflate it with a little pump that came with the cast. How cool, eh?

Well, except that I hate wearing it. I can't wait to get out of it.

Boo! The company that I work for is a direct competitor of DonJoy Orthotics (the comapny that recently bought AirCast).

Most of their sales reps and management are jumping ship right now...

After DJO bought aircast, they shut down the US factory (in New Jersey), laying off over 200 employees, and moved production to Mexico.

Where are we going, and why are we in this handbasket?

Ye, gods! Why were you rushed off to the Michigan Heart and Vascular Center for a sprained ankle? Oh, wait. It must have been before they knew that's what it was. Duh! So, I take it everything, except your ankle, is okay? Good! *hugs*

Just be happy that the old plaster casts are gone. I broke my leg some 25 years ago and had to spend two months in one.

Yeah, everything's ok except my ankle. Apparently my veins are in great shape.

Gee, thanks Griffin. I hate companies that do that stuff. I already hated this darn cast but I have to wear it.

See, Troberg? Happy, happy! [Big Grin]
