President-elect Joe Biden was first seen in walking boots on Tuesday, days after he broke his right leg playing with one of his dogs over the weekend.
Before his first public appearance, Biden, 78, announced his appointment to his business team at The Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delhi, before the event. The president-elect gave thumbs up to reporters outside the event and said he feels “Good” despite the injury.
BIDEN IS PROBABLY “BEGINNING ONLY” CORONAVIRUS RELEASE PACKAGE
Biden walked the event slowly, but without much difficulty. According to his personal physician, Kevin O’Connor, he is expected to wear the trunk for several weeks during his recovery.
The former vice president twisted his ankle while playing with Major’s dog on Saturday. After feeling pain in her leg, Biden visited an orthopedist the next day.
“Initial X-rays reassure that there is no obvious fracture and you will receive additional CT for more detailed imaging,” O’Connor said in a statement. “A follow-up CT scan confirmed the hairline crack (small) of President Biden’s lateral and middle cuneiform bones, which are in the middle of the foot.”
