Here is my x-ray, showing fractures in two places.
It's been three weeks since I broke my ankle on the bus.
Here is my bandage from the hospital to wait until the swelling goes down.
Yesterday I was given a proper hard cast on my ankle :)
I chose black, of course :)
I don't need surgery, although I might need it in the future if my bone fragment doesn't stick. I've been told to rest for another three weeks (lame!) and then I'll get a walking boot (yay!)
I'm really bummed, because I'm missing out on a house party, two clubs, and Killing Joke!
Killing Joke are having a concert next week, playing their singles. I'm really sad that I won't be able to see them. It would be really hard for me to get there and hobble around on crutches.
I feel bad that I'm missing out on so much work. I'm lucky that I have enough sick leave. I want to get back as soon as possible. I feel so guilty for having so much time off.
I haven't run out of things to watch, and I luckily have a lot of items to read on my Samsung tablet. I'm currently watching a lot of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 :)
I'm a bit lonely, but I'm always lonely so what's new? I'm annoyed that I can't do anything productive, like craft stuff, because all of my craft items are in boxes which requires me to walk around lots! :(
Maybe next week I'll try to get some sewing done. I'm doing a little bit of crochet at the moment, I'm going to make a blanket. I need more wool, but I obviously can't go and buy any.
It's finally cold here in Perth, and I'm really sad that I'm missing it! I love walking outside in the morning when I can see my breath. Stupid broken ankle.
