    After I broke my leg and ankle, it took me about 5 Months where I could walk without a limp. Now 6 of those weeks I was still in the cast. So at work, I was walking with a limp. I stayed off the top of Airplanes for about my first 6 weeks back to work. So I basically stayed on the bottom, and I cleared all the paperwork. So with that, it was 3 Months before I was able to go up and down steps 20 times a day and navigate around all the openings on top of the jets..

    Now it was almost a year before I could run without a limp. So being an Umpire I stayed of the 90 foot bases, and stayed on the Little league, and Pony League fields. They are 60 and 75 foot bases.

    And what I mean by that is the distance between each base.

    But you should continue to wear the brace in court - pity card? Whatever works! :D

    That is sure better news than what you were anticipating and for that I am glad. :icon_toast:

    I agree.

    Also, create a story (the truth usually works :lol: ) on the reason for your gimp. When I had jury duty this past week, one attorney had a little bit of a cracked voice. He told of cheering on his son's high school football team (and his daughter performing in the half time band) and later used a football fan analogy to get his point across. It's a good tactic to get the jury, or potential jury to relate to you and your client.

    Conversely, one defense attorney lady was dressed very homely and had a mousey voice and personality. I doubt her appearance and the way she carried herself helped her client in the mind of the potential jury.

    Humor and relating to a jury on a human level, have merits, IMO.

    :icon_eek:I shan't say what I saw upon first seeing this post:no::icon_redface:


    However... upon further review those things could lead to your Achilles tightening back up and going "snap" again :beat: Please use that great brain of yours and don't do something out of stubborness that leads to reinjury, ok?
