    I broke my lower leg and totally made spaghetti out of all of the tendons and things around the ankle six years ago when I was 67. 8 titanium screws to hold it all together. They kept me for 4 days for observation. 11 weeks in a hard cast and another month in a soft cast. I am now better than new. I had an excellent orthopedic surgeon. Best of luck, it will end and everything will be okay.

    Oh, I did it when I was out fishing on a pier and I jumped up because some porpoises swam by. I got up too quick and got dizzy and went over on my ankle and my leg gave way. The paramedics and the Emergency Room attending doctor all grimaced when they looked at it, so I knew it was bad.

    I am doing ok. Going very stir crazy, but R has said we will go for a drive and maybe a late lunch out today. It will be my first time leaving the house since surgery 9 days ago, so much needed. I have a leg elevation thing for the wheelchair, so I can continue to follow Dr orders.

    I go Monday afternoon for my follow up and am really hoping for a step forward in what I’m allowed to do. Even if it’s just being able to use my left foot to balance without bearing weight.

    I would KILL for a hot shower. We are working on the logistics of making that happen should I get the ok from the Dr Monday.

    I appreciate all the well wishes here. What a wonderful community we have.
