Since I’m such a silly person, why not name my right leg (the one with the broken ankle) Rosie. It’s the most logical thing to do when you break an ankle, you gotta name that sucker. Let me tell you more about Rosie..
She likes being propped up with piles of pillows and bitches when I put her down.
She cooperates when I exercise her but then gets back at me later on so painkillers and I are now bff.
She is swollen still with bruising on the side but not as humongous as it has been before.
Rosie likes being inside the boot and feels icky when it’s taken off.
She’s becoming choosy with her positions lately. Maybe because she just wants to break free and walk soon.
I feel that Rosie is getting better each day but I want to hear it straight from the doctor. I’m already dreading the physical therapy sessions because I know it will be painful but it is something that I cannot escape if I want to walk. Never again will I break a bone.
Two weeks ago, an unfortunate accident happened to me. As I was walking down the stairs, I missed one of the steps and I fell down. I immediately felt excruciating pain in my feet. I wasn’t able to get up at all and I was in total shock in what just happened that I can barely breath and was shaking so hard. I was lucky that the husband was home that night. He came to my rescue right away and took me to the ER. My feet quickly ballooned that I was too scared to even look at them.
After getting an x-ray, the ER doctor said that I sprained my left foot and broke my ankle on my right. The left foot was bandaged and the right one was placed in a temporary cast. After giving me a pair of crutches and a prescription for pain relievers, I was sent home. I was advised to see an orthopedic surgeon as an outpatient.
Two days after the accident, I’m back at the ER for blood complications brought about by the broken ankle. This time, I had to stay. I was confined in the hospital for a week.
Now, I’m back home and recuperating. When will I be able to walk again? I don’t know but I hopefully this month or the next.
I have said it in the past, I handle our finances and so far no complains from the husband. I hate math but I like saving. I’m glad my Mister allows me to take over this particular aspect of our lives. It always boosts my confidence when he praises my money handling skills (and my cooking). Here are my three golden rules with budgeting and managing our finances:
Don’t spend more than you can earn.
Save money for a rainy day.
I’m not as good as a raleigh nc accountant but my skills are enough for handling our money. However with the recent events that has happened, I have temporarily relinquished my role as the banker/accountant in our household so I can focus on my recovery. This will be a good opportunity for the husband to improve his skills. Hehe. After all, we are all encouraged to be good stewards of God’s blessings.
Since I will be stuck in bed for awhile due to a freaky accident, I might as well start reading again. Here’s on my to-read list:
- The Kill Order
- Perks of Being a Wall Flower
- The Fault in Our Stars
…and outdoor concerts are back after the hibernation mode during winter. In my younger days, I would appreciate a live performance with excellent peavey pa system. I have seen concerts but not in an outdoor setting. Based on my personal experience the crowd is a bit calmer in enclosed places but that was a long time ago. I guess it will also depend in what type of crowd a certain music festival would bring. I have not attended one yet but maybe in the NEAR future before I get to old to do these things. Hehe.
