it could be worse
Rewind 2 months ago: I woke with a sore ankle (for no reason) and walked 2 miles in the opening day parade for Little League.
Rewind the last 30 years: I have had a lot of foot surgeries so I wasn't alarmed at the pain.
Anyway, I got home and my cankle was HUGE and killing me and has been swollen and hurting ever since. I finally went to my regular doctor who said "hmmm, something is really wrong here, you need an ankle specialist". I went to see my new 12 year old orthopeadic specialist ( I now have two 12 year old specialsts, wah!) and she's pretty sure I have a stress fracture. I need to wear this damn boot for 2 solid weeks and go back for an exam and x-ray. Two solid weeks except for sleeping, showering and driving. The worst part is driving. Take the boot off at the car, drive, put the boot on, do whatever I went there for and repeat. THIS SUCKS! It is also very hot, and itchy. WAH! Oh yeah...I have to sew left-footed now. WAH! Did I ever mention that I live and work on the second floor? WAH! One more thing, I will probably need to continue wearing this another 6 weeks after. WAH!
I am however an optimist...shut up, I am!... and am so happy that I don't need more surgery. Yay!
