Some of you may recall that I broke my ankle in two places back in 2013 and it was H..E..double hockey sticks getting back to normal. Then in May 2014, it happened again! And this past May, I took one step down and over it went again! At first the doctors at Emergency thought it was broken, but after further x-rays they determined that it was the old break they were looking at and I'd seriously damaged the ligaments and tendon this time!
So on went the cast - again - to stabilize the ankle until such time as I could start physiotherapy - again! My doctor put me on Vitamin D and Calcium and sent me for a bone density scan. That has come back indicating I have osteopenia - the precursor of osteoporosis. I was shocked, to say the least, but when I see my doctor this week, she will tell me how we'll get a handle on it.
In the meantime, everyone has been so gracious about helping me out around the house and taking Tegan for walks and playing Frisbee. I'm much better now, but can only walk for about 5 minutes - slowly - and not with Tegan pulling me. I am now able to go and watch when one of my daughters, or my son-in-law or my grandchildren take her to the park to play. And last time I took a few photos of her playing Frisbee. And the best thing of all is that I can drive again now - I couldn't for so long because it was my right ankle!
Just for fun, here are a few recent shots of my adorable baby (who is already 2 1/2 years old!) She keeps me going and I can never resist her happy, smiling face - even when under the weather.
