The Ankle Saga…

I know you’re all waiting to hear about our annual sibling supper- and its coming soon I promise… I just thought I’d mention the ankle first. 🙂

This past Saturday it was 7 weeks since I damaged the ligaments in my right ankle. 7 WEEKS!!! And yesterday for the first time, it didn’t ache all the time! Yesterday and today I can actually walk on it without the crutch and it doesn’t hurt with every step.

It still hurts, make no mistake, especially when I sleep without the brace on and I twist it in my sleep… and after a day at work which includes driving myself to and fro.

I have gained a lot of mobility but I’m nowhere near as flexible as I was yet. I’m still doing physio, and I’m doing the exercises she gave me that I can do myself… but it’ll still be a while before I can wear my beloved Nine West’s again 🙁

Its getting better at last! I am so so happy! And I am determined to go to Oz without needing the crutch.

  1. Yay! Can you get Ian a postcard from Oz, I will paypal you the money for postage. I am doing his room with framed colleges of post cards ( I have been collecting Post Cards since I was 6). It is ok to say no.

  2. Shame man, That’s horrible it still hurts but glad it’s improved. With your willpower I’m sure you’ll be going to Oz crutchless. I just checked on google maps and Cooma is south of Canberra isn’t it? Nowhere near Brisbane then 🙁 Bummer.

  3. Ditto with The Jackson Files about the Sibling Supper … rumour has it you won this year 😉 Sheesh, but 7 weeks is a helluva long time to be sore whenever you walk 🙁 Glad it’s improving tho!
