Housebound while ankle healing

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Since my surgery, I have only been out of the house twice. Well, I did go on the porch but I mean out in the car to somewhere else. I can't drive a car until my tendon heals. I went to the doctor on the last Wed of December and on Friday my daughter drove me to the cell phone place so I could get a new phone. My old phone got wet and the display was ruined.

I have missed a couple soccer games. Luckily I can work from home. And that does save me gas and bus fare too. Still, I am getting tired of being stuck at home all the time.

I go back to the doctor this coming Wednesday.

    I feel your pain, literally. I had surgery on Dec. 1 and have not driven since then. I am not back to work either, I don't have the luxury of working from home. Hopefully tomorrow that will change as I go to the doctor and am now walking with a boot on. I still cannot take more than 5 steps without the boot.

    Hang in there, it will get better, it just takes time. Something someone told me and if you think about it, it makes since. Your foot is the furthest body part away from your heart and therefore takes the longest to heal because it's the last place for blood to reach. That's why elevating the foot is so important.

    Take care. Donna emoticon emoticon
