Ankle update

If you missed the ankle post, you can find it HERE.  

After the first two weeks, the it was feeling a little better, but the swelling had only gone down minimally.  So friends convinced me I should get it checked out.  The Dr. was pretty funny, and came highly recommended, so I was pretty comfortable.  He poked, twisted, pulled, and finally decided to take x-rays.  What we saw was a small piece of bone chipped off.  Looked like a small pebble on the x-ray.  He wasn't 100% sure if it was from this injury, of if it was old, and this aggravated it.  (I wish I had a picture of the x-ray...  it was kinda bizarre).  

He put me in an aircast (which ironically is NOT filled with air, but with gel), and told me to come back in three weeks.  That was a week and a half ago, and I'm going nuts.  This stupid aircast hurts, and makes my foot hurt worse.  Not to mention that it does not fit comfortable into any shoe, which makes dressing for work a real treat!  Doesn't make dressing for play very fun either, but at least it's dressing for play???  

AND - no bowling for those 3 weeks.  (I did go and root the team on last week....)

Anyway - I've been sucking it up, and hoping that this thing is actually doing what it's supposed to be.  Just waiting now for it to start feeling better...

Will post again on this after my re-visit...

Hobbling along,

Maybe it was a tiny screw?
