A Broken Ankle by Numbers

3 months
6 x rays
4 casts
2 sets of crutches
2 nights in hospital
1 boot
1 surgery
1 screw in my ankle
countless hours in a hospital waiting room
and much more patience than I ever thought I had

13/12/13 and 13/3/14

I think I can say that things are pretty much back to normal now. I got discharged from the hospital nearly 2 weeks ago (apparently my x rays are perfect) and haven't used crutches for a little longer than that. There's some pain in the foot but I think its just from the getting used to walking again and getting the full range of mobility back- it's nothing an ice pack won't sort out. I'm allowed to drive again and I was actually allowed to train at trampolining this week. It felt so good!
