Foot fetish

Yes, I AM obsessing about my foot at present. In lieu of any art/quilting this week, I present what is currently on my mind - namely, one ankle that is 4cm (1 1/2 inches) thicker around than it should be. Yes, I can walk - after a fashion. Yes, I even drove the car today. But the improvements are so tiny, it's hard for me to see them when what I can see is an ugly swollen foot. Enough of wallowing in self-pity.

Shirley, you have suffered so much with your ankle without complaining that I think you deserve a little moan now and then. I think it's just a good sign! You are getting better slowly and you can't see it happening quickly enough. My son's leg is almost back to normal by now and he never mentions it, but it took a long time.

Oh Shirley, you clearly need some sympathy! It will go down, truly it will. You just have to do that really hard patient!

Put it way up in the air & wiggle it around, & wrap it up with an Ace wrap before you get out of bed in the morning, & eventually it will most likely get better.
I'm sorry about your ankle. It must be quite painful.
