Chapter 26, Day 16 .... foot injury & recalculating
Saturday, July 15, 2017
Ok, so it is official: doc said my foot injury is a bone contusion, with some tendon damage, in which the injured area is constantly stressed because I walk on the side of my foot. He wanted me in a boot up to my knee (or an ankle boot), a 90 degree night splint, and fitted with orthotic shoes. I said no to the boot to knee, opting for the ankle boot, which can take longer, and can be less effective. I'll try the ankle boot first, and then if that doesn't work, I'll go with the knee boot. The knee boot, was sure to cause me problems elsewhere (knee joints, hips, back) -- so it will be my last recourse.
My injury occurred last September when I came down wrong from a zumba jump. The injury was not healing. Doc said zumba classes help keep them in business
Allrightythen. I can't walk for my fitness minutes. I'll have to find something else. Chair exercises? Swimming is an option, but I'm not sure I will join a Y for that. And this injury will not keep me from eating properly, lol.
Audit is done
Our friends from FL are staying with us this week....they are the easiest houseguests...they are leaving tomorrow morning.......I enjoyed our time together.
With ankle boot on, and the pressure off my injury, my foot is not in pain....healing is already underway.
Figure out a suitable way to log some exercise minutes.
Wishing you an awesome day!
