Oh my ankles!

17 Sep

 

 

I haven't posted since the surgery update and I'm sorry for that.  But I have a total excuse.  Surgery went well and actually the pain isn't too bad at all.  I now have a very pretty cast, all doodled up from my daughter.

 

But then the fun started.  To make a long story short…I fell on my second day at my new job and now have a sprained left ankle…3rd degree too!  So, needless to say, I'm in a wheelchair with one leg in a cast one in a splint. It's a possibility that I will have to have surgery on the newly injured leg after a bit, but we'll see…so, here's the pics, oh what fun!

 

 

 

 

This one is my left…look how pretty and swollen and black and blue!  The bruising is now moving to the right side of the foot and even up my leg!  This actually hurts more than the damn surgery one!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here's my pretty cast!  My lovely daughter is having a blast, it's her own personal coloring pad!

    Oof! That does look painful. I hope it's getting better quickly.But, you do have such a lovely and stylish cast to offset the ankle, so at least you can recover fashionably.
