What else can go wrong? I feel like I'm on a soap-opera instead of on my Spark journey! After seeing the orthopedist yesterday, they found that my left ankle has been broken for almost 3 months (no wonder I have been in pain while trying to walk and dance!)
I am now immobilized until they can schedule surgery to insert 2 screws. I know this is just a temporary setback but I'm really feeling overwhelmed at this point. I was doing so well!
Guess I'll have to change my goals once again - will probably wait until after the surgery to figure out what to do. In the meantime, I will continue to try to eat healthy and do some upper-body exercises and right-leg lifts.
So many ups and downs, but the good news is that it is Spring (even though we had a snowstorm yesterday!) A time for renewal and refreshing. I will use this time to reflect on how far I have come and reinforce the determination that no matter how bad things get, God and I can handle this together.
I will still be on the computer and will absorb motivation from Spark friends until I am able to actively move forward to my destination! Please keep posting so I can follow your progress!
Second, don't know if this helps, but it could be worse. In February of last year I fell and tore my Achilles tendon. MONTHS went by before I could get a proper diagnosis. And then I had to wear an immobilization boot for 9 months to let it heal. Now, I'm about 79% better, but still having to exercise "gently" as I do the work necessary to stretch and strengthen muscles weakened by wearing the boot.
The good news -- I am eating healthy (mostly) and I am exercising my upper body.
Be patient with yourself! Overcoming this obstacle will give you depths you never had before!!! 1404 days ago
