Yesterday, while at therapy, the therapist put the above contraption on my foot/ankle while she had the brace off. The texture is much like a fabric band-aid. The large portion was placed on my leg and the "arms" stretched down my leg to my foot. Supposedly, this is to reduce swelling. Huh? This combined with the brace makes for some funny stares and comments. Oh, well! Whatever it takes to get this foot/ankle well. Only in the life of Jana! I live drama-to-drama.
