Winter of My Discontent

There goes the winter. I broke my ankle on Thanksgiving weekend.

No exciting story. I was literally walking down a sidewalk when my ankle turned out and snap went my tibia. I don’t need surgery, which I am thankful for. But the orthopedist said that it may take 10 weeks for it to heal. It feels like an eternity.

I am trying to take it day by day, but it’s pretty miserable. No, it’s really miserable, because I contracted a UTI on top of it, so I have to hobble to the bathroom on an hourly basis.

This chain of events has rendered me incapable of properly starting my birthday list, seeing any friends [safely] for the holidays, or visiting my family [safely] for the holidays.

If you have any advice for enduring the next eight weeks, I am all ears!
