It has been one week since I fell while gardening and broke my right ankle . . . and what a week it’s been! I am doing a little better each day, and I’m thankful to have ways to get around the house.
A rolling chair has been a great help in the kitchen where we have hardwood floors. I can scoot and roll around and reach most things. It’s awkard . . . but I am grateful to be able to get a glass of water and reach for a snack in the pantry without having to call my husband, who has been so kind and caring.
This knee scooter is a great invention, and it helps me move from room to room. It was tough to use at first because me knees were very sore from the fall, but as my knees healed, I was able to use the scooter and make tracks!
My church, Calvary Chapel Living Hope, in Robbinsville, NJ, has been a great help, bringing us meals, calling, praying, and even planting the rest of the flowers in my flowerbeds. I am humbled and very greatful for their love and support.
I want to say a huge thank you to all those who have sent cards, offered prayers, brought meals, or called to check on me. I feel very loved and cared for by you all.
When you think of me, I’d appreciate prayer that my foot and ankle would heal well and on schedule. Also pray that I can have a good attitude and accept these limitations and even find good lessons through this time. And last, please pray I will use the time well and find ways to encourage others.
Have you ever had an illness or injury that kept you off your feet for a while? What lessons did you learn? What helped you cope with the limitations?
