Broken Ankle Update 2013

Blue Eyed Honey Birds
Australia 2013

I have loved reading the kindest and most wonderful of messages asking me how I am since my return from Australia, following surgery for my broken ankle. Well this last week has been incredible especially with the speed at which I am recovering. I visited a specialist in UK last Thursday who took further xrays. These showed the broken bones are healing really well although I will need futhrer surgery in the future. I visited a physiotherapist yesterday and they were amazed at how well I am doing. I have recovered far better than anyone expected at this stage in healing process. I can stand and easily walk on crutches although I need to rest my foot as much as possible. Small achievements have made my days. Like the first time I successfully walked upstairs alone or stood in the shower. Placing weight on my injured foot is now comfortable.

I will need to be on crutches for the next few weeks and I will be wearing the big black boot!. But I am expected to be fine again in weeks, not months as first expected. If I do as I am told!

It is very hard sitting still as I often dance when I am painting. And stand! But I keep thinking how lucky I am. I could have broken my wrists and this could have effected my future of painting and writing.  I am also aware that several friends have been sending healing prayers, reiki and distance crystal healing. Whether anyone belives in this kind of help or not, the outcome is incredible. Knowing you are being given loving support at a time when you need it. That positive help alone is a huge boost to my morale.

I was taken to the specialist in a wheelchair last week on the Thursday. Yesterday, the following Tuesday, I happily walked into the physiotherapist on crutches and asked if it would be okay to just walk with one now. I was advised to stay with two but I am eager to be well again and fighting fit. I haven't time in my life to be immobile! And at this rate I can see me trying Zumba in Autumn! 

Watch this space, health is a state of mind and mine is saying I am fine!


Thank you so much for all the lovely messages,healing, prayers and support. You may be healing me too quickly but   I am thrilled you are!
