Recent Random Ramblings

June 24, 2013

Late in April, the 30th to be exact, I was following my then manager down the stairs at work. I was walking, something I rarely do on stairs, because my manager was wearing heels and walking in front of me. As she turned the corner on a landing, I missed the bottom step before the landing and went sailing across it, into a wall. Somehow I managed to fracture my right fibula and sprain my left ankle. The sprain was much worse so for about a week I walked around on the fracture while using a crutch for the sprained ankle. Upon visiting an Orthopaedic Surgeon, I was fitted with a right walking boot and told to ditch the crutches and air cast for the left ankle. His instructions were that I could take off the boot to drive, but the more I wore it, the sooner the ankle would heal. I took that to heart and got Sarah to drive me everywhere except work. The Ortho Doc told me I could use the other ankle as much as was comfortable. Somehow I decided that going to the Lilac Festival was a good idea. We walked very slowly and took many pictures! I am terrible with flower names, so please feel free to correct me on any I may have mislabeled.

We had fun, but I was ready to be done after about 30 minutes of wandering. I do not recommend damaging both ankles at the same time…
