Ankle Update

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Saw the doc yesterday. They're going to start me w/physical therapy. Said I can take 800mg ibuprofen up to 4x a day to help w/pain & swelling. This would be great, as after 2am I can't sleep as ankles have been paining me. Have you heard my pitiful wimpers in the night?

Doc said to ditch the crutches around the house, time to walk on the ankles. Use them when out, or on uneven surfaces. It's going to hurt, just don't roll the ankle again.

Well, the 800mg along w/the Vicodin did the trick at bedtime, I slept through the night for the first time in a week, and without pain. I even had a couple funky dreams. Today I've got my ankle laced supports on, and I see a big difference. Not quite my old able-bodied self, but I'm getting there. Hakuna Matata!

Glad you slept through the night, couldn't hear your wimpers over my husbands. Beat him silly last night for snoring, had to keep gabbing him, poke, poke.
Now about those funky dreams, anyone we know*wink*??
Good luck walking on those ankles!!

You poor sweetie! Don't go all crazy and start salsa dancing or anything! I want to hear about those dreams!!!

Kerri - I went through that with my hubby for 17 years! He got a CPAP last year and life is good! I had problems sleeping with all that silence for a while.

I love me a medicated woman.... did your hubby enjoy you too? said...

That lace up boot is kinda strange looking don't you think? It could be kind of "kinky"
