My orthopaedist says my ankle is healing normally, it feels good. Symptoms I’ve described are normal, and can occur for up to 6 months (ye gods). He doesn’t want me to wear the cast anymore, and gave me a sheet of strengthing exercises. I may go back to the pool next week, maybe start a new Pilates DVD I got this week.
Jill had to return to the ER for a checkup today. They said her leg’s in good shape, but to keep taking her medication and redressing the wound. It was a long couple days at work for her, and she’s going to try to take it easy. Her mom comes in on Friday until Wednesday, so she’s off work, and hopefully she won’t overexert herself.
