Broken ankle: week 1

Ugh, in bed all week. So many people offered help: friends, family, neighbors – it’s a blessing to have such a wonderful support group. Food, visits, texts, emails – thank you everyone. Adrienne, Linda, and I usually meet at a Starbucks to visit. This week we still had our Starbucks treats but in my bedroom!

Maria came by on Saturday.
By Monday, I was able to hang out with Jim and Lucy NOT in the bedroom. Progress!
Yes, my ankle hurts, but the worst achy pain came later – my shoulders and upper arms from using the crutches. By the end of week 1, I was able to put some weight on my left heel (only) which made using the crutches somewhat easier.
