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.
