FREE to any new ATR in Phoenix (or Arizona)

Friday, December 24th, 2010

Anybody out there want my knee rolly thingy? It was a godsend to me. It’s the kind where you rest your knee/calf along a cushy bench thing and then push yourself along with your good foot and steer like a scooter. It even has a basket.  I wouldn’t feel right selling it since my insurance [...]

One Year+ Merry Christmas to us all!

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

This Christmas the only big black boots in the house belong to Santa Claus! Last Christmas I had one of my very own! I finally get to be the one peeking in on all you guys a year from my ATR  and saying, “It gets better. Really it does!” It’s been a year since I [...]

Back on my TRIKKE

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

I ruptured my right ATR November 3, while taking my inaugural ride on my new TRIKKE scooter. Now, 4 months later, I am back riding it again. Went around the block a couple times tonight. I didn’t shatter any land speed records, but it was fun and I wasn’t worried about my tendon much at [...]

Positive Post

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Well, I haven’t posted in a while, which I guess is a good thing! Today I am exactly 15 weeks post-op and doing great. Graduated from PT, although I do continue to do MOST of the exercises MOST of the time (well, OK, some of them some of the time).
Driving to work and home no [...]

Maybe I over-did it…

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Suddenly having some pain after having escaped relatively scott-free (compared to some other poor souls on here) thus far. The pain is at the calf end, not the heel end. Of course this worries me because I tore my AT on both ends and the calf end could not be repaired surgically. So that tear [...]

Happy Valentine’s Day

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Didn’t think about my ankle much today. During the first couple months, I used to think about it pretty much constantly. Went to church, breakfast out,  went shopping, did laundry, went to the movies with my DH, and not much swelling for the first time ever!

Puffy, puffy foot

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Some days it’s not so bad, but then other days, like today, I get home and my ankle is riduculously puffy and swollen. As far as I can tell, I’m not doing anything different on the days when it swells so horribly. On the bright side, my PT says I am almost ready to get [...]

And loving it. Did a lot of weeding in the front yard, laundry, lunch with a friend, shopping, and still going strong. Life is great at 11 weeks, 2 days.

11 weeks today

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Since my surgery. Things are going along OK. Glad to be in two shoes. A little dismayed by the swelling and dull ache in my heel at the end of the day. I should have expected it based on all the posts on here on the topic. Somehow I thought since I had had so [...]

Shoe shopping

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

I seriously thought my swelling wasn’t too bad- but I went shoe shopping today and my right foot is two sizes larger than my left. I guess I’ll stick with crocs and the one pair of clogs I bought after the surgery. . There’s something about crocs that makes it easeir to get  your foot [...]
