I still have a few weeks out until I am officially recovered from my broken ankle. Right now, I am entering my sixth week since breaking it, my fifth week since the surgery to fix it. Technically I am not allowed to put weight on it fully, but I was bad, took off the air cast and took a drive around the block on such a goregous day. My ankle is already protesting with pain and swelling as predicted but okay other than that. I’ve been out of work since February 2nd and at the mercy of family and friends for getting around. If I am lucky, I get out of the house once a week. But today was gorgeous and driving a little gave me a taste of freedom I’ve been wanting since February.
