Here's my swollen ankle, six weeks post-injury. I was sent for more x-rays yesterday and nothing appears broken. Despite rocking my PT and taking it super easy, I have shooting pains and am not healing as expected.
It's difficult for me to do simple things like run down the stairs, rush across the road, take my dogs for long walks, or have impromptu dance parties (although I still try). So for yesterday's - Tuesday's - gratitude challenge, I choose health. It is the golden ticket! Dealing with the inconveniences of this injury as well as family illness makes me ever more grateful for every single day of good health.
Reminds me of that quote, "I was complaining I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet".
