Well I put weight on my ankle this morning (see what I did there? scared ya, huh!). Looks like I am having the miraculous healing that I (and all of you) have been praying for! Really swollen still, pain is under control, (taking vicodin every 4 hours) but getting better. Before I could not even rest it on the floor without extreme pain and today, with crutches, I can put some weight on it.
I cannot tell you happy that makes me. I am going to continue to rest, ice and use my brace and pain meds. A friend sent me a recipe with vinegar and alcohol to soak my ankle in that I am going to try later too. Can't hurt, right?
I am limiting my activities until Monday am so I can be the best I can be for next week but am really happy with the progress.I am keeping my nutrition under control and Frank has been cooking (he made ground turkey tacos last night) which is really adorable how he has been taking care of me.
God is good. And so are you guys. Thank you so much for your prayers, sympathy, stories and support. It means the world to me.
Have a great weekend.
(Oh yeah, Kady had some friends over last night cause they were going bowling and she was showing them her ostomy bag and how it is going to look etc. I took that as a good sign of her acceptance and willingness to talk about it with people. I really do have peace about the surgery and her recovery. I KNOW she is going to be fine and I know that alot of this comes from God answering your prayers for me and my entire family, so thank you).
