Conversation

Talking with my doctor, at my 6 months post-ankle-surgery followup visit:

Doctor: Your ankle looks a little more swollen than I'd expect to see at this stage.
Me: Well, I just sprained it pretty good on July 4th. Since I was here last, I've sprained it at least 3 times.
Doctor (surprised): What???
Me: Hey, I can walk on it after spraining it now. The one on July 4th was bad enough that before the surgery, I would have been on crutches. Now I can walk on it after spraining it.
Doctor: So this means there's improvement?
Me: Yes, most definitely.
Doctor: That's good. The surgery can be done to help stabilize your ankle, but we unfortunately don't have a cure for your clumsiness.

I found your site from Sprite’s Keeper. I love it. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!
