For my long time followers, you may remember that back in the beginning of March I was gone for a week or so because I had a bit of an accident. Part of it resulted in me twisting my left ankle pretty badly. So I did the requisite thing of being kind to it for 8 weeks, the norm for a bad twist. However, it wasn’t getting better, still painful and aching and my activity was limited, but I procrastinated because…well…can we say beach vacation? And then add another.
Yesterday (it still feels like today since I haven’t slept) I went to the docs who said if I went him right away….well…anyway, right now the result is the same. I have this lovely and very, very heavy and hot boot on my foot for the next three (hot, sweltering) weeks. I can sleep without it (yay!). But it’s clunky and I need to wear a really high running shoe on the other foot to stay somewhat balanced and not knock my body out of kilter.
Hopefully this will take care of the issues. Evidently I am one of those folks who has an extra bone in their foot (who knew) and it was traumatized when I twisted it (it wasn’t the only one!). Since I am going to the Outer Banks in North Carolina in August for my traditional holiday and need to walk and frolic (who doesn’t frolic at the beach?!), I am seriously hoping the boot will be magic and nothing else will be needed. I so want to play tennis and do things that I haven’t been able to do.
My words of wisdom: don’t procrastinate on things to do with your health unless you have an extraordinarily good reason and those are rare.
