....the one where I broke my leg

Yup, I did it this morning slipping on a dew-covered hillside out walking the dogs. It's not a bad break. I fractured it just above the ankle. We were supposed to leave for vacation for three weeks tomorrow but we were just driving to see family so we aren't out plane tickets. I find out after I see the bone doc if I have to have surgery. If not, then it is 6 to 8 weeks in a cast for me. It's my right ankle so no driving for me for a while. Argh. The pain isn't too bad unless I jar it and then Holy Cow! I will use this opportunity to become a whiz on crutches and build up those arm muscles.

I'm sorry! Life is really beating you up, isn't it. I'm glad it's not a bad break, at least.

And congrats on the new dogs, they are beautiful. (I'm one post behind on your life.)

I wish I could go back to being one post behind on my life. 8-)

The dogs are great...real sweeties with a LOT of energy. It will make the next couple of weeks pretty interesting but not lonely.

I'm sorry this happened on top of everything - hope you don't need surgery. You can also use the opportunity to make the new dogs (who look very sweet, btw!) very good at playing fetch.

I hope I don't need surgery either. I find out on Monday afternoon. Maybe the dogs can fetch me chocolate ice cream. I could go for that.....

Oh noooooooes /o\ Oh that blows! I do hope you don't need surgery and it'll be only 6-8 weeks, which is plenty. Without a car. In a cast. Probably showering with a plastic bag on your foot >.< The inconvenience it causes in your daily life is probably worse than the pain. Heal fast!

It's the car thing that is the worst. My family relies on me for the bulk of the errand running and I'm the transportation to school. We'll manage but it's going to be a right pain in the ankle. On the plus side, I hope I have a cast I can draw on.

Oh no! It just doesn't let up, does it. Good luck with the crutches!

Oh Hun. I'm just caught up on your other posts (I don't know how I missed them. Though I suspect it's because I'm not on LJ as much as I used to be. Which, I never thought would happen tbh). I am so sorry to hear of your recent loss. And now this! Hopefully things will turn around soon.

All the best. ❤️

Thanks so much...it will get better. it's kind of been a lot all at once though. I think I'll need a summer vacation from vacation. At least it's big bang season so there is plenty to read. 8-)

I think I'll have to take it pretty slow. I find out on Monday just how slow it will go. Hopefully I'll be slightly more functional with a permanent cast on.
