Update on the ankle!

Got my staples out this morning. 0/10. Do not recommend. But at least they’re out now. My skin isn’t itchy anymore! And I can walk––very slowly––on both feet!  Doc says I can even stand up to take showers again. My foot is still swollen like crazy, but that’ll go down as I work the muscles. So that bed rest really paid off (thank goodness). It almost doesn’t feel real that I have the splint off and can walk again! Unfortunately for me, I won’t be able to ride until probably May, but I can at least go to the barn and hang with the horses and everyone.

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES. Not as bad as the surgery pictures, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😉

Pardon my unshaven-ness. I personally liked the smiley face that was a leftover surgery mark. 
That’s glue on top of the staples to make sure everything stayed sealed, which only made the removal process that much worse!
