I broke my ankle today!


Saturday, February 15, 2014

Yes, I'll be out of commission for a while. I was bringing in the groceries at noon today and slipped on ice and snow on the stairs, yeah, that was painful, lol. I broke my fibia on the left side of my ankle on my left leg. At the hospital they put soft/hard splint on my leg/ankle. On Mondy I need to make an appt to see an orthopedic surgeon.

Well that means no walking or cardio and only upper body exercises!!! **Sigh**

    Just dropped by your page and catching up a bit on what's been happening in your life.

So sorry to hear about your accident. Sounds painful. I can well imagine it is discouraging not to be able to do your usual walking/cardio. I know the difficult time I would have switching to a routine which eliminated what is working for me. That being said, don't be discouraged. Stay focused on what you can do in the mean time because it's more than nothing.

Praying you will experience a speedy and complete recovery, Ruth Ann.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your accident and wish you a speedy recovery. Do EXACTLY what the docs tell you to do and don't try to rush your recuperation time!
Luckily, Spark has several seated videos. I use them on the days I have trouble walking and standing.
You are in my prayers.
