Still alive but definitely not kicking very high

OH, my goodness, how I've missed all of you.  I thought I'd take just a moment to let all of you know that I feel all the love and prayers being sent in my direction. 
The ankle is mending well.  I've had the stitches removed (11 inside ankle; 16 outside ankle)   and I'm now in a boot though I still can't bear weight yet.  How wonderful it is that they aren't going to put a cast on.  When I asked about it, they said that they would if they felt like I wasn't going to behave.  Believe me.  I'm behaving.
The real problem has been my mouth.  Remember that I had an abcessed tooth removed sometime back in early September before I did the break-the-ankle thing?  Well, now I've gotten some sort of infection in another part of my mouth.  My theory is that it was something that I got in surgery.   Since surgery, I've had one of those horrible ulcer-like places in my mouth and I just suspected that it had occurrred during surgery.  Long story short (like I could), I've had an infection in my mouth that has been more unbearable than anything I've endured with the ankle.  Just when I thought I could get away from some of the pain medication this mouth thing flared up.  There's doctor appointments this week so hopefully I'll have something more positive to report. 
 Please know that I think of all of you.  Wonder how all your etsy shops are going.  How are all the kids and grandkids adjusting to being back at school.  How are all the wedding plans going?  10-10-10 will be here real real REAL soon.  Any more dog runs up north?

Please stay in touch.  I"ll be doing better about checking on all of you.  I"ll be watching.

I'm so glad to hear from you again. I really hope your mouth sore goes away soon, and that you will feel better then. And you really should behave, and keep off that ankle for a while:) Hugs from Paraguay!

Good to see your smiling face this morning! Been thinking of you and glad the ankle is mending well. The mouth? Yikes...that is bad. Hope they figure out what's causing the infection and get you on the proper antibiotics.

I was worried about you . I'm glad you posted. Sounds like you have been through so much. You are in my prayers. I'm sure once the mouth thing is under control, the ankle will be far more manageable and only a matter of time. Take it easy and join us on our blogs when you feel up to it.
Blessings and prayers of healing-
Patrice

Oh WEEZER!! You've been missed, too! It's good that your ankle is on the mend... but NOT that you have a mouth infection. Hmmm... strange...

I'm so glad to hear from you. I really hate that you've had such a time with your mouth. I hope they get it cleared up, but be sure to watch it closely.
Still praying for your healing.

Your post title cracked me up. It's good to see a new post from you - that means you're off the couch! =)

Annette said...

I'm so glad to hear from you...I was wondering how you were coping. I'm sorry to hear your mouth is being a problem. I'll continue praying and look forward to more posts from you! :)

I've been doing about 2 a month since the first of the year. I think now I will be doing only one for the rest of the year. Time will tell.

I know what it's like to have a mouth infection. I've had one all my life. There's just no telling what kind of sick stuff will pour out of it at any time.

I'm glad you are back and I wish you speedy recovery - for both ends.

Java said...

So glad to "see" you!! I'm glad you made it through but I'm sorry to hear about your mouth! Ugh...that must be awful!
Take care of yourself and speedy recovery!!

Hugs.
