I went to the dr today

it appears the reason I could not walk very well is that I have a severely sprained right ankle and even more severe arthiritis in the same ankle. I am now sporting a boot on my leg which, if you have never had the good fortune of wearing before, is quite heavy. like at least 100 pounds. ok I do exaggerate but it is heavy and I have to wear it all day every day and use crutches. hump. well hopefully I will be able to walk properly after this. I certainly hope so. and I have a nasty cold. whew when it rains it pours. but at least I did not gain any weight!

I'm really sorry to hear that, Katy! I hope it heals soon and that you'll be fighting fit again!

Well done for not gaining any weight! :)

Hi Katy .Hope your ankle repairs well, what a nightmare for you.

At the moment, for me it seems to be one cold /cough after another. I wil certainly be glad to see lighter evenings.

In Texas do you get the seasonal changes as we do ?

With longer days in summer and very dark short days of winter.

in the part of Texas I live, west texas, we have long long summers with average temperatures of 95, very short winters and little rain. I have terrible allergies and really hate the hot weather but as my family is from here, I always end up back here. I understand about the cough and cold, I have that too. when it rains it pours I suppose but there is always the alternative of things being worse. as far as my ankle goes, I like the boot as my foot feels better already!

That's one way of increasing your exercise... by adding leg weights :) I'm glad you've found the reason for not being able to walk too well and hopefully this will help improve things.

Oh wow, you have a cold as well. I feel for you but like you say, at least you haven't put on any weight. That's a good result.

Hoping that you can get this all behind you soon katy.

Good morning Tiggerr hope you are doing great today ☺️.

I slept well and longer than usual, better let Cockneyblue know.

I to have a cough and cold.

Fresh air today as I have not been out doors since Sunday.

I'm hoping to get my dressings changed today.

Hopefully you will not get blown away by the storms.

Hey George another one with a cold. I've been waiting since the beginning of Dec to get it, as everyone around us seems to have gone down with it. Fingers crossed.

My first day back at work today and starting a new job, which is probably why I haven't slept too well for the last two nights. I'll probably feel better once today is over.

Good luck with the storms. There were large bins blown over when I was walking the dogs this morning but I think you've got it worse up there.

Hope the dressing gets changed.

Hi Tiggerr I'm not that bad, flu shot in October.

Good luck with your new job today and I hope that all goes well.

Mind you take a flask for your lunch, hot soup for this weather.
