That Did Not Last 24 Hours!

A couple discussions back I whined about falling and going to the e.r. making sure it, the leg and foot, was okay and all that jazz. I wore the ankle support all evening, even after my ankle popped and I got relief, and took it off to sleep as instructed. I woke and ut the ankle support on and wore it all morning. Until...... It was raining, I looked down at that contraption and wondered how the heck I was going to keep that sock dry. I opened my walking shoe as far as it would go and my foot and this thing would not fit. I took it off, put my shoe on and got up and walked around. Hmm.... less pain! I drove Tony to his treatment and for another scan. I walked, but used his cane, when needed. My foot is just a wee bit swollen and getting better by the minute. I owe my healing to the good Lord and my stuborness. I now lay that big plastic ankle support to rest, in a bottom drawer, someone might need this another day. How had your Monday been?

Monday was kind of busy for me but I started getting busy only in the afternoon. Still catching up on my sleep actually so woke up at 9:30 which isn't normal for me at all. But since my business trip, Sunday evening was the only evening I could finally sleep in my very own bed. I must have missed it so much that I woke up very late.
In my limited experience, when I sprained my ankle. It healed quickly when I used it carefully. I was back to normal wishing a week. A girlfriend sprained her ankle the same week.m she had assistive devices and sat and rested that poor painful ankle. Three months later it was still giving her grief. Glad that it's feeling so much better.
