I guess the answer is to suffer the misfortune and pain of a fractured ankle and dislocation! Not that I recommend it!

Unfortunately it sometimes takes something like this for us to wake up and take a good stock take of our lives.

I hope that your recovery is totally uncomplicated and that you are soon 'up and running' so to speak.

Take care,
Kris

Living in Alaska in the winter can test the resolve of most people. 20 hours of darkness, subzero temps and a frozen world can have impacts on the mind and body. I strive to stay active in winter with ice fishing, snowshoeing, sking, and the other necessitates like taking care of the chickens and splitting wood for the stove. However, about 4 weeks ago I was headed down to the coop and tried to avoid a nasty icy spot so I stepped up on a retaining wall on the edge of my driveway. This proved to be a disaster as i fell and broke and dislocated my ankle and required surgery. I have made a conscious decision to seek solutions and not sympathy and to make the best out of a bad situation. Its been 5 weeks now (5 more in non-weight bearing cast) and I have read books, called friends, laid on the floor with my dog and helped my kids with homework. In fact, Ive spent more quality time with the family than I have in a long time. I heard a quote (not to talk religion, but it makes a good point) that "if the devil cant tempt you with sin, he will do the next thing and make sure you stay REALLY busy." I think the point is, we sometimes allow our priorities to be dictated by our desire to feel productive. Sometimes, it is nice to slow down, roll on the floor with the dog and play board games with kids to make me realize what I truly value and where my priorities need to be!!
