Day 7

Wondering where day 1-6 are? I didn't write them.

Seven days ago I checked in for out patient surgery. I checked in at 7AM and was being wheeled back by 8:30 and was home relaxing on my couch at 11AM! Wham bam thank you mam!

The quick and dirty is: I had a torn ligament that had healed in my right ankle, I had super weak ankle and would roll them/sprain it a lot. I finally decided to take action.  The doctor went in and did what was called a Brostrom procedure. Basically, they cut the torn ligament and replace it with fuse it back together with some great medical suture thingy that will make it stronger and stay together. They also cleaned up additionally fraying of the other ligaments that were taking place.

Additionally, they took a look at the inside of my ankle and could see some cracks, although healed stated that I will most likely get arthritis in those areas later in life. 

Since then, I have not left my house, I have showered only 2x and well have been an overall pleasure to have around. I kid! I am in  great mood for the most part. The showering and leaving the house part is true. :)  I am blessed I can work from home so that helps to pass the day.

I also have been tracking the progress of my cast on instagram my kid thinks its a great place to draw and stick things to.

Overall, I look forward to getting the cast off. 1 week down, only 4 more to go!
