Lightening the Load


Today I found myself back in the orthopaedists office, where I was last getting my purple cast cut off. There was a slight tingle in my ankle, but it wasn't constant and was definitely much, much better than it has been in one year. Five minutes later, I was walking out with the all clear to ease back into physical activities and to just call if I needed.
