Fractured leg

Ouch! Yesterday I fractured my fibula bone, near my ankle. Oh well.
So, I'm on crutches, using a wheel chair and also a scooter. I'm all equipped. I was at Maria's house coming down her stairs and I missed a step or two and hit the tile really hard. I should have taken off my glasses because the bottom part of the lens is about 300 and used for reading....and I couldn't see well. Anyway, I was fine for about 4 hours until something must have cracked. I was at Michaels' getting some ornaments and I was suddenly in severe pain. I hopped around looking for a basket, bought my items while on one leg and hopped out to the car. I couldn't drive with my right foot. I was in excruciating pain driving along with my left foot. I hopped into the house and then crawled to the couch. I called Larry. Yeah for Larry. He came to the rescue and brought me to the doctor. Now I am wearing a removable cast up to my knee. It could take up to 8 weeks to heal. Another trial. I'm so glad that my house is all decorated and the tree is up. I wish it wouldn't have happened and I will be more careful in the future. But....come what may and love it!

  1. hi there,broken as well and the removable cast was more uncomfortable than a regular hard cast. It's so bulky and heavy so if it bothers you tell the doctor. How is the pain and swelling? Try to keep it elevated as much as possible.
