July 16, 2016 ~ Update on Leg Injury

Here is the latest update on my work injury to my right ankle and leg.

I’ve been back at work full-time in the Seafood department at Fred Meyer since June 1, 2016. It’s been a long month and my foot, leg, and hip have not been able to handle the workload or standing on my feet for 8+ hours.  It is even worse when I have to lift something heavy and try to walk.  My right leg is still weak.  I still cannot step on the ball and outside of my right foot without pain and discomfort.  By the end of my 8.5 hour day (sometimes longer) I can barely walk out to the car, limping all the way.  I’m always scared I’m going to fall again, being unsure of my steps.

Grandbabies and Smiles

I’ve been thinking a lot about my grandchildren lately.  I’ve not even met our little Jake yet.  Hopefully, Al and I will get to make a trip there in October for both their birthdays (Oct 2nd and Oct 7th).  Justin just had a little girl this year name Aryia. Emily is growing up so fast and loves to talk to me on the phone.  Here are some of the latest photos of them, which always make me smile.

Walking Again ~ I Want It Now

Walking Again ~ I Want It Now

Good evening my friends.

My surgery on February 10th to get my screws removed from my ankle went well.  I was told I could walk with my walker and in my boot.  When I first tried to step down on the foot I was surprised it hurt so very much and that I couldn’t even come close to stepping completely on the foot.  Discouragement set in.  Now, almost 2 weeks later, I have seen a lot of progress.  I’m walking faster with my walker but still not stepping completely down on my foot.  I tried to take a step with my cane and it was a no-go for now.  🙁  I have an appointment on February 23rd to get my stitches out.  I will then get a referral for PT.  Hopefully Workman’s Comp will give me enough sessions to start walking on my own again.
