The swelling has gone down a little in my leg. I actually have an ankle sticking out on the left side. I'd almost forgotten what it looked like. I missed my ankle. I'm glad to have it back. I'm still in quite a bit of pain, but I'm forcing myself to do things. This morning I actually took a shower. Required standing on the painful extremity for more than a couple minutes, so I think the fact I accomplished it is awesome. I need to get back on my feet. Or someone needs to show Sweet Hubby where the fresh food aisle is in the grocery store. I am so missing fruit and veggies.
I encouraged SH to go to work this afternoon. He's starting to go stir crazy. He said he'd come home at 5:30. So far, I'm doing okay without him, more or less.
Last night I got the last 4 inches of that second Opal 1296 sock done. Yes!!! Here's a pic I took about half an hour ago.
