Just when I was feeling fine, healthy and getting stronger from the swimming, I did something stupid. And the end result was this:
With Hubs down and out for lifting and dragging, I was trying to drag a couple of old, ratty and moth eaten umbrellas down the stone stairs from the pool deck. Didn’t watch where I placed my foot and fell, landed on my right side and unluckily fractured a bone in my foot. For those of you in the know, a ones fracture of the base of the 5th metatarsal.
Normally it gets casted and you walk on crutches for six weeks, but with the household situation, no can do So the boot and a
which I really don’t use. We had to cancel two trips in the hopes I can be well enough to go on our trip to Iceland. There’s a 25% chance it won’t heal – probably more because I’m walking on the break – but what can an active woman do?
Anyway, there has been an epidemic of falls with people I know, so watch your step out there, people!
PS I’m still swimming, just using a one leg flutter kick! And no, I’m not swimming in circles.
