The Broken Ankle Chronicles: Day 23

Posted on Updated on


I’m officially more than halfway through with the six week recovery from my broken ankle. Much of the pain and swelling has gone away. I can put a like weight on it, but gingerly and not for too long. I believe I’m on target to be able to go without the walking boot at the six-week mark, January 6th.

I spend most of my days laying on the couch with my leg raised above my hips (doctor’s orders). That’s left me a lot of time to study and work on some social media marketing plans for a few small businesses.

One aspect of my life that has been missing for the last three weeks is getting out of the house. Before, I went to work five days a week and probably went somewhere on one or both of my days off.

I got a surprise today when my wife took me to lunch at Romano’s Macaroni Grill. We enjoyed a nice lunch — I had a caprese panini and fettucine alfredo — and came home.

That made me happy.

I’m hoping to get out soon to watch Anchorman 2 and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug soon — when the theaters might not be very busy.
