Peg leg

Immediately after typing my last post, I got up from the computer and somehow managed to get my flip-flop caught on the rug and rolled my ankle over. It hurt like H-E-double hockey sticks.

After a quick trip to the ER, I was sent on my way with a pair of crutches and an air-cast. Seven to ten days on the crutches, 2 weeks in the air-cast, 5-6 weeks for full recovery. Although I'm certainly glad it wasn't broken, I know that a bad sprain can take longer to heal than a fracture.

I've been compliant with my home instructions for resting, elevating, applying ice often,and NSAIDS every 6 hours. It's really an inconvenience.
