...upon this photo.
Thanks to those who posted and emailed me notes of cheer and concern--it's very sweet of all of you. The photo was taken a couple of days after my fall. The bruising on the other side isn't as strong, but the aches are still there, as are what I call "secondary owies"--my calf, my wrist and hand--probably how I landed.
The nagging pain that emanates from my right ankle drains my energy. I tend not to take painkillers during the day because they knock me out (we're talking regular strength Advil, nothing stronger)...not a good thing when trying to be a productive human being.
I do my best to stay off of it. I did well on Thursday, but was in more pain on Friday. The swelling subsides daily, but I know I won't be able to wear my "fun" shoes until the summer...my strappy red heels, my black peek-a-boo open toed stillettos...not even the more sensible ankle boots nor perfect (and I mean *perfect*) navy blue pumps. Yes, I am very girlie when it comes to matters of footwear.
On the bright side--I am now officially between classes! My final assignment of term is a mere memory. I have no idea how it will be received as much of it was drafted while in a woozy state. I have three weeks "off" until the next class starts...
Did I mention the treats?
I've also been the very happy recipient of convalescent treats :)
The piccie on top is of the contents of a sacful of treats from my favourite chocolatrie...below is the "sugar bomb"-- the sweetest and creamiest eclair I've eaten in ages.
