Anniversary

Today is a mile marker for me....exactly one year ago today I broke my ankle















Three bones broken and one a compound fracture.....





After surgery that added screws and a steel plate to put it all together........

Months of therapy and today...

Almost as good as new!!
The left is always a little larger now but I am so grateful to have good use of it.......

Oh My Goodness!!!!!
That looks awful! You are so blessed to have come thru that...on your own 2 feet:))))
We take a lot for granted don't we? I am going to be thankful for every step i take today!
Glad you came through all that!!!

Chatty...yes, it is...I didn't post it after it happened.....thought I would only show it if I had a happy ending.

Has it been a year already? Yikes. Time sure flies. So happy you are healed.

Congratulations! I broke my neck and had spinal cord injury in Jan '98. For the next ten years my daughters and I had a "Celebration of Life". Sorry to say it has passed us by the last couple of years. We should never stop celebrating! I'm glad you have moved from the hurt to being grateful! Good job!

That woke me up this morning! I end up hurting my knee every summer and it stays sore for awhile after the kids leave and go home to Texas. This summer I noticed my right knee is fatter than my left one, thinking it was swollen. Nope, it's just fatter. I should take a picture...

At least you had pretty toenails for the surgery. ;) I personally feel that helps. Great post!
