Another Update

On Friday I will admit that I ran Miley in my yard and did some agility. Nothing tough. When I was done my ankle hurt like heck. Ugh!  I started freaking out. How am I going to do these seminars?   Yesterday I did walk at the park but used a crutch to keep some of the weight off my foot.  It still hurt to do that. But when I got home I didnt have any increase in pain so that was good.  While around the house I dont use crutches at all.  Today I wanted to try the park without crutches.  I did the sports wrap like they showed me at the doctors office and put on the brace.  I cant fit into any of my tennis shoes comfortably with the brace on.  Even my bigger tennis shoes.  So I tried my summer shoes I use when I want to walk but also go in the river. These work great!  They are my old ones so getting stretched out isnt a problem.

 I did well walking at the park.  Im not fast but Im able to put full weight on it for a distance. And when I got home no increase in swelling or pain. My ankle/leg/foot is almost back to normal swelling wise.


And just so you dont think I only take pictures of my ugly legs and feet.  Here is a beautiful picture of Stephanie from last night. She was in a DECA competition and won 5th place for her category.

Congratulations to a fabulous looking Stephanie, and a big woohoo that you've found some shoes that are working with the wrap and brace. It definitely is looking better and better so I hope it holds up for the seminars.

Glad your ankle is looking good. I am sure you will be able to do the seminars if you keep resting for a little longer.

Congrats to Stephanie, she looks gorgeous in the photo.

NOt to hurt your feelings, but you gotta know STephanie looks sooo much better then your foot, LOL. Boy I feel for you so much.....dont push it too much or you will make it that much longer until you are healed, but then you are a nurse and you know that!!! Rotten timing for an injury, but guess it is better then sometimes it could be happening. I just hope it gets back incredably fast, but it sure looks ugly ;-(

Both of my ankles are sprained. My left one i did at agility on 2007, and it hasn't healed yet. In fact, it's been bothering me lately. My right one I did about a year ago, and it, actually, feels better than my left. :p

Ankles suck. I want mine replaced for some metallic robotic components.
