On the Injured List

Crazy title, right? Well that is me right now, just like some of my favorite football 🏈 players, I’m on the “Injured List”.

This all started over a year ago. I had started an exercise routine at home and then would walk on my lunch break. I started noticing that my heels were burning all the time and when I would wake up and stand on my feet it was very painful until I got moving around. By the end of the day my ankles and feet would hurt and I was wore out. So, finally after about 5 months of this I went to my primary doctor ( yeah I know…I should have gone sooner). So she had me go take some kind of test with an ultrasound and the results were normal. Yeah I was frustrated and just kinda blew it off and dealt with the pain but when I couldn’t take it anymore I went to see a podiatrist.

So I see this doctor, very sweet lady, get X-rays and the exam, you know, the usual stuff and then here goes the results. She says, “ Well Mrs. Alsobrook you have plantar fasciitis, Achilles’ tendonitis and inflammation around the bones on both your feet but on your right foot you also have a stress fracture.” The look on my face I’m sure was priceless and I’m thinking to myself “Geez Kelley, when you do it you really do it big” 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ So in comes the nurse with my boot. I was truly not a happy camper about that. This was in May…..

To make a long story short, I had a couple of falls and mishaps that injured my foot/ankle a little bit more. Over the past 8 months of being in the boot my doctor has threatened a cast and a couple of days ago she made good on that threat‼️

Yep….for the next 4 weeks this is my new accessory 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️. At least it’s purple‼️💜

The bad part however is that because of my weight I almost blew my left knee out trying to use crutches so I’ve been stuck at home barely being able to move around. Boring 💤. But I have a new toy that will be here today and that will help me get around.

Yep, my very own knee scooter 🤣🤣🤣🤣. One of my coworkers said “From G Wagon to knee wagon” I thought that was pretty hilarious. I’m thinking I may need to bling this thing out because that’s just my personality.

Well friends, I will write soon..
