With this broken ankle, I am finding that I am having to rely on a lot of other people. My family has been amazing in helping me but I am getting very very tired of having to have help for everything. Even having to go to the bathroom I have to get someone to get me the crutches or help me up. To get out of bed, I need someone to help me get the boot on so that it protects my ankle. I can’t even join the family at the dinner table. All I can do is sit and let things heal while everyone does things around me. It is all very … humbling.
I am about a week and a half into this process where the doctor tells me it will be a good six weeks. The good news is that the doctor said that I only need the crutches as long as it hurts to stand on my ankle. While I am still there, I can say it does not hurt as much as it did. So I know I am getting better. And soon, I may still have the boot but I will be able to do more myself. I am looking forward to that.
In the mean time, I sit and am able to work. I feel hungry all the time but I am trying not to eat all the time although you can still bring me food (Besides Prayer Everyone Bring Me Food … Like Pizza or McDonalds … LOL!) . I don’t need to be the size of a house when I get back on my feet–literally.
