Broken and high.

I broke my ankle in a completely undramatic way. Thought it was sprained but nope. Also, it needs surgery to fix it. So I’m in a hospital and have been for a couple of nights now. High on painkillers and unable to eat or drink.

Good times. All the time to write and none of the mental acuity to do so.

At least I still know what acuity means.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that. I broke mine and had surgery 7 weeks ago. I’m still recovering and know it’s no fun πŸ™ At least the pain will be less after the surgery. I’ll be thinking of you.

  2. Oh Ann! I’m thinking at least if you’re in hospital, they keep you hydrated and ‘fed’ through IV. But not being allowed to put anything in your mouth is… frustrating, torture, and all those other things in between.

    I hope the surgery goes well. I had an ice machine after I had knee surgery, it helped a lot. It is a smal icebox/water bottle sort of things, with tubes attached that link into a cuff I strapped around my knee. There was a small pump that would pump ice cold water inside the cuff, making sure my knee was iced at all times. It helped a lot with pain/swelling right after surgery, and allowed me to work on recovering faster. But I realize with broken bones, you need to wait until they’ve healed before starting therapy ( started the day after surgery, at home, with a machine).

    Ugh! Good luck. And if you want some healing energy, let me know, I’ll see if I can help.

    All the best from across the Pond.

    PS: you’re right, knowing what acuity means while being high on drugs is a feat, though not surprising from my friend Ann!

  3. Thinking of you and I hope you’re healing up well, and have lots of loving help during this time. May you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year full of dreams come true. XO!

  4. Oh no! I see that I have been gone for far too long. Are you healing and doing okay?
    Thank you for hopping over to my site this morning – I think of you often and hope that you’re happy and loved. xo

  5. Ann,

    I hope all is going well with your ankle and you are resting comfortably.

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Get well soon.

    All the Best!
