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.

    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.

    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.
