Day 173 - Frustrated but Hopeful!
Thursday, September 19, 2013
I sprained my foot mostly. The pain is on the inside arch and around the inside ankle bone. No bruising other than a dime size red mark. I can walk (limp) slowly and if I walk on the outside of the foot, it doesn't hurt too bad.
All day long, I iced my foot and propped it on a pillow while watching season 2 DVD of Game of Thrones. OMG - blushing!!!
I am heading off to work soon and I tightly wrapped my foot and ankle. The good thing about working residential is that I can hang out with the clients while propping my foot up in the living room. The only times I really need to do anything is dinner time and passing meds. Other than that, the clients are very self sufficient.
I am hoping that by tomorrow I will be able to put most of my weight on my foot and walk normal. I don't want to walk or jog yet. I want to keep resting my foot for the 5K Zombie race where I will be a zombie. I won't be running the race...
Sigh.....I do hope that by Monday, I will be able to walk / jog with no problems and get back to my routine! I am just thankful that the sprain appears to be very mild.
