Day 4

It’s been three days since my lateral ligament reconstruction, bone spur removal and bone fracture surgery.

Today started out a bit rough. I was in a lot of pain this morning and spent more time sleeping than I did yesterday. I’ve had a really upset stomach (let’s just say  that the narcotics are doing a number on my digestive system).

I was told that today would be the first day I could attempt to shower, but I was feeling so exhausted that I just washed up and threw on a Bondi Band. I may attempt a shower tomorrow, but only if I have the energy to stand up on one leg long enough. My ankle is non-weight bearing for at least three weeks, if not longer.

And then these beautiful flowers arrived.

My sister and her boyfriend had them delivered from Whole Foods. They are so beautiful and were the ray of sunshine I needed on this rough morning.

Thankfully, mom was home today and answered the door when they arrived. I’m not sure how I would have gotten them in the house otherwise!

Today I napped, watched Netflix, played some games on my computer and designed new business cards for my LLC. I can’t wait to see them!

photoTomorrow, the plan is to do some knitting. I’m working out a pattern for a bootie of sorts over my cast to keep my toes warm! Here’s what I have so far. –>

And, let’s not forget about my adorable nurse.

  1. I empathize with your situation. I tore the cartilage in my knee back when I played sports. It took a long time before I could do physical activity without much pain, but the day did come. I swear doing exercise on an a recumbent exercise bike helped once I was capable of that much.
