US President-elect Joe Biden fractured his right foot Saturday while playing with his puppy.
He’ll probably wear a walking boot during the upcoming fourteen days.
“Initial x-rays didn’t demonstrate any apparent fracture,” but the medical staff arranged a more comprehensive CT scan, his physician, Kevin O’Connor, said in a statement.
The following scan discovered tiny fractures of 2 little bones in the center of the right foot,” O’Connor explained.
“It’s anticipated he will probably require a walking boot for many weeks,” O’Connor explained.
Fractures are a frequent concern as individuals age, however, Biden’s seems to be a relatively gentle one according to his physician’s statement and the projected therapy.
When he is inaugurated in January, he’ll be the earliest president in 78.
Reporters said Biden was limping if he walked into an imaging center for the CT scan.
Biden sustained the injury playing Major, among those Bidens’ two puppies. The president-elect along with his wife Dr. Jill Biden embraced Major in 2018, and obtained their first puppy, Champ, following the 2008 election.
The couple plans to attract both dogs into the White House and find a kitty.
Last December he published a physician’s report which revealed that he takes a statin to maintain his cholesterol at healthy levels, but his doctor described him as”healthy, vigorous” and”match to successfully fulfill the responsibilities of the Presidency.”
