Instead of pissing and moaning about what a dismal morning it's been, I will hereby take control of my day and forcibly make it better.

  • Spring is only a little over a month away.
  • I plan to order a bunch tea from here.
  • In about 49 or 50 hours, I will have the exam behind me, one way or the other.
  • Today is my last day in the office until Tuesday.
  • If it snows real good on Monday, maybe I'll get a snow day on Tuesday!
  • For the most part, my life is full of wonderful people, exciting experiences, and lots of comfort and joy. Really.

Tell me something that's going well for you, won't you please?

ETA: Also, E and I have started watching Lost (we've only seen the pilot so far, so please don't spoil me) and we LOVE it! I confess I was a little hesitant on the grounds that it has enjoyed such popularity, and… you know how it is. I rarely appreciate highly popular shows very much. But the spooky factor is really high, and we are eagerly anticipating every episode.

Um, let's see, going well? I saw an orthopedist today and I'm allowed to put a tiny bit of weight on my right ankle again, and there's actually no old fracture there at all (unlike the radiologist at the hospital's opinion that there was an old fracture there.)

Basically I have an inversion injury, which the doc said is like manna from the gods in terms of if you have to have an ankle injury, an inversion is what you want to have.

So there, I guess that's good stuff, right?

Well, it's certainly "could be worse" stuff :)

Would it be morbid of me if I wanted to ask you some questions to further my knowledge of this kind of injury? Would you tell me if the pain and swelling is primarily on the lateral (outside) or medial (inside) aspect of the ankle? Cause I think I know what an "inversion injury" is, but I should make sure. If you don't mind talking about it?

Also, would you be willing to ask the next doctor you see if post-acute massage would be helpful or not? Cause I could maybe help to prevent scar tissue from building up after the swelling is entirely gone, and the healing is well begun.

Sure, we can talk about it. Swelling is mostly lateral, however, they ER did up the ace bandage too tightly, so I also have a great deal of swelling on the top of my foot near my toes.

Doctor said no ace bandage, it was a bad call on the ER's part, apparently. He said I can expect the swelling to remain for weeks, possibly.

I will see the doc in 3 weeks and ask him about post-acute massage.

Okay, and actually, I should clarify everything:

an inversion injury on an ankle is when one's foot turns outward on its side (crunching the inside inward)

Now that I've been on my foot a bit today, the swelling is equal all around; when I was in the hospital Monday after the event happened, it was mostly on the outside.
