You may remember that I rather clumsily sprained my foot a couple of weeks ago. Since then, people at work ask me all the time about how my foot is doing. So I thought I’d give you all an update too.
Mostly it’s doing well. I only needed crutches for a couple of days (my goal was to not need crutches when I returned to work a few days after spraining my foot) and managed to hobble around OK after that. I’ve been putting it up as often as possible at home and putting an ice pack on it until a few days ago. Now I do try to stay off it a bit, but it doesn’t bother me a ton unless I walk on it a lot. (Like today, when I went grocery shopping, then ran errands at three other stores this evening.)
I have had a few mini-relapses here and there, mostly involving Little Sister or Book Boy stepping on or bumping into my foot. (I swear, I should wear steel-toed boots around them!) Or today, for instance, when I put my purse on the kitchen floor while unloading groceries, then tripped on it shortly afterward and stumbled heavily across the floor. Didn’t fall, but it didn’t make my foot feel better, that’s for sure!
