A Tale of Two Ankles
Two broken bones and counting. Do I hear torn ligaments? Going once? Going twice?
Actually, we don't know the extent of the damage yet. I do know that my status as part of the 99% is showing. I have no insurance and I've got to pay for this shit out-of-pocket. Yes, I have a job, but I don't work full-time there yet (and may actually be out of this job now).
Do I want to discuss how this happened? No. I will just say that it was a bar fight and "you should see the other guy!"
In other news, there is none. I am now on the DL for at least two months. (sigh) I see the orthopedist tomorrow to find out more.
Does it hurt? Yes. Am I taking pain meds? No. The pain from this is nowhere near the pain I felt during the knee replacement. I refused the pain med prescription when it was offered for this injury. I won't fill it, so why even bother to let the doctor write the prescription?
Don't forget me, Mother Ocean. I'll be back soon enough.
