LOL...I think I spoke too soon...

Or I felt too much like Superwoman that I overdid myself. Since I am blogging to document everything, I really should say today was the COMPLETE opposite from yesterday...

I felt fine in the morning and as I got ready to go to the movies with my girlfriends. I even managed to go down the 5 steps out of our apartment building ok. Right foot first, then left foot, right, left...ok! Well I wasn't paying attention when I stepped off the curb into the street and I stepped left foot, then right foot and I freaked out that I changed the order. I might have been ok but I wobbled a bit and kind of just banged into the car. No biggie.

Well, as soon as I got out of the car at the movies, I was definitely in pain and it only kept getting worse. We watched the movie and went back to Emily's house where I saw my foot was swollen (1st time it happened since the cast came off). I spent the rest of the day icing it and keeping it elevated. The pain from laying down all day has bothered me so much, I'm still up.

I have to admit, I am a little disappointed. I was so excited to be independent yesterday and today I went backwards. I get that this is part of recovery, but I am still a bit bummed. Another part of recovery that I need to get used to is knowing my limits...since I've never done this before, I don't know when too much is too much. But as with everything else, I will get the hang of it.
