Good news, followed by bad (although semi-predicatable), news. I hurt my ankle playing frisbee last month, and as most of you probably already know, either being my family or close friends, I was in a moon boot for a month. And damn did I look good ;) This didn't help the underlying problem though, so I self-diagnosed the moon boot as a waste of my time, and presently scheduled a new doctor's appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon in Portland.
Blah, blah, blah...final outcome = surgery for Liz. Yet again. Does anyone else find this incredibly ridiculous and annoying?!?! Can't a girl just get some rest from endless doctor's visits, physical therapy, and gnarly scars. Oh, but I did mention good news followed by bad news. Well, the good news is that my previous surgery, which proved to be extremely intense and painful, is still intact. Good? Yes, let's go with good news. The bad news you already heard...surgery. I wonder if I get a discount on this surgery...you know, like buy 2 get one free? Might be worth looking into...
The main reason for this post, besides informing you all to my ever dynamic string of injuries, is to send a shout out to my parentals. Hi mom, hi dad. I seem to be continuously relying on them for various expenses and financial support. This is the third surgery in 6 years (or something like that, they all run together). That isn't cheap. So thanks mom and dad for not complaining (too much) and scolding me (all that often) about my many battles with ankle stuff (usually I would say "ankle shit", but I'm trying to be more classy). I swear someday I will have a functioning ankle for longer than a year. That, or they will just give up and give me a robotic ankle. Because let's be honest, there is no possible way for me to give up all of my sports and outdoor activities...including, but not limited to, dance, Zumba, Ultimate Frisbee, bouldering, and running.
Keep your ankles healthy people.
Love Liz (aka: gimp, limpy, broken, robo-foot)
And don't think I have forgotten about my goal for more pictures, it is a work in progress, but it is coming.
