Yay, the cut tag worked!

Last post was from urgent care where i was waiting to be seen. X-rays happened, nothing broken or torn, but -- wow -- this hurts more than any sprain i've had before. Also, the left is sprained and swollen as well, but doesn't hurt nearly as much.

Christine has bought me a cane.

The number of spoons it takes to do anything that requires movement is surprisingly high: i feel like a big baby.

Anyhow, i am now fed and rested and washed, and i hope the photos from the walk turn out well. The camera seems to have survived, yet again.

I wasn't wearing ankle braces when walking. The podiatrist i saw a year or so pronounced my ankles strong but loosey-goosey.

Yuk, I think this is worse than my knees, which are having surgery this Friday. Take care.

Well, the good news is that both are things that the medical folks understand well. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to you, too! Will you be in rehab somewhere? We brought Real Food to a friend in knee recovery once. Although her real food was a low bar, and i'm not sure i'd know how to get you Real Korean Food. Sunny Bowl or whatever that is is right out....

Can you work exclusively from home for a while? Conserve the spoons! I hope the pain is lessened.

Yes, i'll work from home for a couple of days. And actually, i think the discomfort has lessened a great deal today. My feet are bored and want to move around (without weight on them). I'm doing the "write the alphabet with your toes" exercise a lot.

That is good news. Boring as it is, please be careful not to re-injure. It seems especially hard with so much daylight to potentially take advantage of.

Best wishes for a swift recovery, and a comfortable rest before then.
