What’s been slowing me down

My weak left ankle turned outward on me for real last Friday, after weeks of threatening to do so, causing an impressive tumble to the floor in the bathroom.

Just wrenched and swollen?

By the next day it hurt in a bigger and more focused way, so off we went to the nearest Urgent Care place.

I will spare you all the details but after a visit to the orthopedist on Monday I now have this at the end of my leg for 6 weeks:

don't let the foot move!
don’t let the foot move!

Makes everything harder.  I have to use the purple walker to take the weight off that foot and this coming week will rent a small wheelchair.  Sigh. How this affects our Montreal plans I am not sure yet.  Eric thinks we should just go anyway, June 3 through 6.  I don’t see why we couldn’t postpone the trip for a couple weeks, until I have less pain and hassle.

    Ouch! that looks really painful. But that purple walker! I see a glimpse just beyond your toes, and it looks glorious. Missing you and sending love, lots of love.
