What takes 9 months to come to completion? Well yes, a human life, but also the healing of my fracture. After the prerequisite time to heal a fracture (@ 3 months), my ankle didn’t “knit”. Introduce a little device called a bone stimulator (Exogen 4000 by Smith and Nephew) and 16 more weeks of healing aid by this technology. On Sept. 4 it was exactly 9 months since my fall and the last day of the bone stimulator. Today, I walked the track at my old pace for two miles without pain. Yeah! As I am writing, I am icing the ankle just in case I over did. But I can’t express how liberating it felt to do what I used to do and how grateful I am.
As I look back at my post ” A year of going 55″, little did I know that my slowing down would be mostly imposed by forces outside myself. I won’t predict what this next year will be like….I may be what I ask for in ways I don’t intend! On to 56.
