It has been nine days since my surgery and tonight at eight thirty I am going back to the doctor to have a cast put on my ankle. I hope it will all go well and everything is healing normally. Having very little to do these days since I am confined to my bed, I found a site online all about people with broken ankle problems. Talk about depressing reading!!!! Maybe I shouldn't read any more of those stories. Some people have taken an entire year to recover. Others have had to have several operations. One person became addicted to pain killers. On and on. I will know more after my doctor visit this evening.
One of my blog readers sent me an interesting blog to check out. Steve Cotton is the writer and he writes about living in Villa Obregon, Jalisco, Mexico. His blog is called Same Life--New Location Ramblings of a single Oregonian retired on Mexico's Pacific coast. His site is steveinmexico.blogspot.com He has been writing on it for several years. Lots of writing there and interesting photos but I have all the time in the world now that I am confined to my bed. Thank you for your concern for me. It is awfully depressing to be stuck in bed. My friends come by and talk about simple things they are going to do together, like go out to dinner, etc. I feel like I have already died because I am no longer a part of life. It just flows on around me while I sit here in pain with my leg propped up on pillows. Sorry for the self pity. Maybe I will feel more positive after I see the doctor this evening.
