Bye Bye Crutches

Week six of sprained ankle and I’m so happy to report I NO longer have to use my crutches. I’m thankful that I had them but oh my gosh they are so cumbersome. Hobbling around with one shoe on and one shoe off might look a bit awkward, but it’s much more comfortable.

I am really enjoying the freedom and mobility one has without crutches. My new schedule is so much nicer. I only have to elevate my ankle for one hour after two hours of hobbling. This schedule is much easier for me. I have an ankle brace that gives me a lot of support and protects me from hobbling incorrectly. My next milestone will be the wearing two shoes at the same time. The ankle is still swollen so I can’t do that yet. Life is good.
