Ankle update and finished object!

Last night I finished mom’s Sand and Sea Tam (Ravelry link), she really liked how the colors came out. Jesse modeled it for the photos.

On the ankle front, I had an ortho appt. today. Got to sit in the waiting room for 1.5 hours while they waited for workman’s comp to fax written permission. I happily knitted on my Bav Girl scarf and my socks while waiting.

Once I was in the back, I had to wait for a resident to get my x-rays from hospital.

So, once I saw the doc, he said I have to wear a brace and sneakers all the time until I go back in 3 weeks.

I have to have physical therapy 3x/week for the next three weeks.

I’m supposed to limit standing and walking, plus ice my ankle 3x/day for 20 minutes.

So, hopefully I’ll be having a much happier ankle in a couple weeks. Very tired of the crutch/es and limping around.

  1. how did you hurt your ankle again? I must have not been on twitter that day. You poor thing how awful, I’m just glad your kids are a bit older as I would think that makes it somewhat easier, but uck crutches and sneakers etc for that long. Bleh!
