Hospitalized

Recommended Posts

I just spent the night in the hospital. I haven't done that since the day I was born. I damaged a tendon in my left foot 6 months ago and got it fixed yesterday. The complete recovery might be 6 months too. That's how it goes when you age. One simple twist of the ankle can mean a year to get better.

Glad to hear you're "fixed" and on the mend, Roger.

BTW. It doesn't just come with age - I know someone who was about 1/3 of your age when she hurt her ankle in a sporting injury. Two years after the operation, it's still giving trouble.

Thanks. I'm home and getting used to the crutches. Now I just have to avoid infections and blood clots. I've never been inactive my whole life so this will be a challenge. I'm going to have to watch a lot of Dukes to keep my sanity.....with a little Bo Duke dancing with the stars thrown in there.

LOL We're big Peppa Pig fans so we know that Grandpa Pig doesn't fix things he mends them. (which would explain why you added "and on the mend") Thanks for the well wishes. I got the permanent cast on this morning. I'll have it until Oct 10 when they'll replace it after removing my stitches. One of my 3 incisions is almost as long as my foot.
