Next week or the week after, I might decide that having the hardware removed from my ankle was worth it, but today I’m wondering what on earth got into me!
The surgery apparently went well, as indicated by this photo of the hardware that I know is no longer in my ankle.
The anesthesia was… let’s just leave it at “dismal,” OK? (There was talk of admitting me yesterday due to the effects of the anesthesia! Fortunately that didn’t happen and I only headed home much later than expected.)
But… déjà vu! I feel like I’m right back where I was last winter – back in the boot, non (or barely) weight-bearing, in pain, and butt-down and foot-up.
OK, I’m done complaining now. I know this is quite temporary and that makes it all much better. Hopefully the saga of Carol’s broken ankle will soon come to a close –a full YEAR after the whole thing started!
