Friday Funny 02-02/18 (On the Mend?)

Eventually

As The World Turns, or so goes the Days of my Life....

My last doctor visit was Monday, and he basically said, "Go forth and walk." That advice surprised me, because the x-ray they took that day showed the breaks hadn't healed yet. When the technician put the photo up on the screen, my heart sank, I thought he was going to say, " Another month of non-weight bearing." Guess again! I'm not a doctor, and I don't play one on TV, (or in real life).

Bionic leg

I put arrows at the breaks you can see, the fourth one is behind the rod, and pins that now exist inside my leg.

My knee is kind of numb, and stiff, but doesn't hurt, and moves fairly well. My ankle is still swollen, and has an odd shape. It also sends shooting zingers out to my leg quite frequently. They say it's because the nerves, and surrounding muscles are getting used to the foreign hardware, and it will eventually settle down. I know this is correct advice, because I have titanium hardware in my wrist also, it did the same thing, and now it's fine.

Bill always says, "Injuries will be amputated."


I'm scheduled for my first physical therapy appointment, for my ankle on Friday. Yes, they initially said no PT needed, but that has changed.


I'm going to the PT office that my niece used to work at, and others in my family have gone there for therapy as well. The office recognized my name right away, "Oh, another one needs help." They must think we are a bunch of dare-devils or something. I wore my new hoodie to the doctor's office, they thought it was funny. It will be appropriate for the PT office too.


Stunt Family

Getting ready for the doctor appointment, it's kind of hard to balance with crutches, and take a selfie.

I should stop doing stunts.

I'm really not trying to be the Bionic Woman, unless I can get that cool background sound when I jump.

Go, go go

  2. Oooh, that sounds like progress. The xray really gives me the shivers, though. Good luck with pt and I’m glad you have someone you already trust.

    1. Thanks! I get shivers too, I don't like to think that there are sharp edges in there.
