WOYWW#125... Lollipops, unicorns and rainbows...


In my pain-induced stupor yesterday, I forgot to post the photo of my desk, so it will be appropriately posted today: What's on Your Workspace Wednesday, hosted HERE by the lovely Julia. Take a snoop around later, lots of fun workspaces zooming around in cyberspace.

As far as the saga that began yesterday, when I regaled the story of my bum ankle as well as presented the card that emerged like Venus from the mess of a desk above, here's what I'm dealing with now.


I found out that there is no break or fracture. Just nasty torn ligaments causing all that pain. But I have to say that the minute the doctor put this on me, I felt 100% better. He spared me the air boot which is such a lovely accessory to any wardrobe. This is just an air sleeve that keeps the ankle rigid. I have to wear it 24/7 for a few weeks. Anything that provides a good night's sleep is fine with me. So, all's well that ends well. He also thought that it's best not to drive for the rest of the week, which means that ds has to get up 45 minutes earlier to get a ride to school with dh and poor me gets to sleep later. So sad. I'm also forced to lie down with my foot iced and propped above my heart so that the swelling will go down. Now that seems like the perfect position for catching up on the DVR tapings, doesn't it? Okay, okay, it sounds enviable but let me remind you the pain isn't completely gone so it's not all lollipops, unicorns and rainbows.

On that note, thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day and watch your step!

Pretty, pretty papers and lots of other stuff as well. I hope it isn't too long before you can get to use it all. That chair in the background looks like a comfy seat to rest your leg in! I had a badly torn hamstring last year and it was weeks before I could sit on a 'hard chair' so my desk was off limits. You have my sympathy. Hope it heals quickly. Kate x

Glad it is nothing serious. Though it will be tough for the next few weeks as you want to get things done. Just take your time and dont rush things. Great card below and desk above!

Ow Cindy - that is not good - ligaments are a slow healer. Having said that of course, at least we now know that your knees are good! Poor you - I hope it doesn't become a bore - it's already an inconvenience (for your DS!!)The trouble with keeping it elevated is that it hurts like hell when you do want to move around a bit...so take it steady. Happy sofa days gal!

Oh dear , do take card and dont overdo it, like Julia's said they can take ages to heal, oh dear that means that you may have to have more lie ins!!!!
Love the paper on you desk, confuseld though, doesnt take much, did you buy the paper in that gorgeous frame shape, or did you make it?

Lydia said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Not the ankle!!! :(

I did just that and I know how painful and awkward it is. Please do what they say - you will regret pushing it.

I'm so, so sorry. That injury is what made me buy a house with no steps!!!

Oooh Cindy, that's very nasty... I had torn ligaments in my ankle once and it was extremely painful, and I was in plaster for several weeks - old fashioned plaster of Paris - people told me what I'd done was worse and more painful than a break and it did take a very long time to heal. Let's hope you do better than I did! You're doing the right thing, keeping it elevated - even if it is on your lovely workdesk!! Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #84
