How do you like them bruises? And the yellow is bruising, not an old tan! You can actually see the blackish bruising around where my ankle twisted all around from the heel to the middle of the inner and outer foot.
lot more respect for people who go through terribly traumatic accidents and have to be pinned back together! My ankle is going to be sore for a long time and I will need some physiotherapy on it, too. But I will walk normally again while others end up in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives.
Also, for those of you who remember that Lorne had liver cancer surgery mid-August, I'll update you on him, too. His surgery was succesful and they only had to take 1/3 of his liver instead of the planned 2/3. The two spots were localized and the chemo he'd had prior to surgery had killed 75% of one spot and 50% of the other. However, (don't you just hate that word?) the oncologist recommends he have 8 more chemo treatments to kill any more tiny little "buggers" that might be hiding in his body. *Sigh* That means 4 more months of chemo. But his doctor will just go one treatment at a time because Lorne got so sick from the chemo before. This is pro-active treatment after all.
Although we both consider ourselves very lucky, we have a bit of a bumpy road still ahead of us. We had planned to get married mid-January, but we have decided to put it off until springtime when he's finished his treatments and recovered well from them - and has a good head of hair back again. lol
Life goes on and we all make the best of the hand we're dealt. I have to spend most of my time now off my feet lounging around with my booted foot up. In the meantime, be sure to think of the lovely Mrs. Nesbitt, the creator of ABC Wednesday, of the loyal Roger, our administrator, and of the likeable team of assistants who come around to visit and lavish you with their learned comments.
Note: The lower extremities below the shins really aren't the most lovely features of the human anatomy, are they?
