Can't believe I did this!

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Does this look familiar? Nope, it is not another picture from my surgery in February, even though it looks almost the same. My son and I were working on some home renovations yesterday. Without going into the long story of how I did this, I dislocated my ankle and broke it in three places. Going to see my orthopedic surgeon in the morning. I can't believe I actually did this, but nothing I can do now except make the best of a bad situation. I'm just thankful that Cliff was with me because I don't think I could have gotten up out of the floor. I think the pain is actually beginning to ease a little since I can wait longer between pain meds. Trying hard to stay awake, but the meds make me so sleepy.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    I'm a little behind in reading and all I can say is oh no!!! That's awful. The one good thing (besides help being readily available) is that you got to have that awesome canoe trip before this happened. It would have been twice as bad if this had kept you from that. I know how sleepy those pain meds can make you! Take care, rest, post when you can and take care of yourself!

    Oh my goodness. NO!!!!

Well, you are handling this really well. Acceptance. The key to the least stressful path.

I hope that your recovery will go well and that your pain is managed well and diminishes quickly.

So glad Cliff was there for you!!

Take good care!!!

! :-(

Oh I HATE when that happens!!!! Been there DONE THAT. Dang it. Just super grateful that you had someone with you because you are right. You probably would not have been able to get yourself up and to the doc. So, uh, that was good injury planning on your part!! ha ha!!

Oh man, now the long recovery and 'changed forever' to deal with. So crappy!!! I guess it's REALLY good you already did that kayak trip. :-)

Oh, thinking of you, my Spark Friend. And in case you didn't already know, there is a team for recovering from injury.

HANG IN THERE (safely, please!) and keep us posted!

I hope you don't need either of these emoticon emoticon
and that you get to wear a boot instead of a non-removable cast.

So, be a swashbuckling conquering emoticon in your recovery and go kick some recovery butt!!! emoticon

    I am speechless! I believe you when you say "nothing to do now but make the most of it". If there is anything at all I can do for you please call me. Hopefully you still have my number from our hiking trip, if not, send Sparkmail.

    Oh my goodness. I am so glad your DS was there. I remember when I fractured my food over 15 years ago in an accident. For a time I was not sure I could handle the pain. It hurt so badly. Glad you have good meds.

I hate to say, I look forward to the story. if you did it, I bet I could do it. LOL. HUGS! I sure hope you feel better soon.

  There are always set backs for all of us on Life's Journey. Please know that you can keep on keeping on. Rest up and get well then get back going to reach your goals. Believe and achieve. You can do it. Your blog indicates that deep inside of you, you are a real winner. Plus you have the uncanny ability to inspire others. Most people would give up. Not you! You let everyone know what happened and we all know what is next. You will be up and going again as soon as humanly possible. Thanks and I wish you a speedy recovery and a blessed life. emoticon
