My foot cast is coming off tomorrow, thank goodness. No idea if I'll get a new one, but the doctor said eight weeks ago that I'd be in the air cast (boot) for another few weeks at least. I can live with that if it means walking without crutches.
I failed by one or possibly two questions. My downfall is the multiple option questions, where you have to pick more than one possible answer. I remember exactly which questions lost it for me.
