Since my left ankle is recovering from a sprain, I spent today at home. I’ve been icing and heating the area around my ankle since Thursday, but it still felt uncomfortable moving around. My doctor visit earlier today went well: my ankle is recovering the way it should be. She also monitored my glucose levels and made sure I needed to take care of what I needed for my insulin. I’ll still put ice and heat on my foot shortly. The recovery takes time, and I don’t want to make a move to jeopardize it.

My left side has surely taken a beating this past year! My left hand is taped up due to the tendinitis, and I’m wearing an air cast on my left leg in order for the ankle to heal. As disheartening as it is to view my ‘flawed’ left side, I know that the additions to my body are only temporary. I very much look forward to walking freely, without the air cast. And be very cautious about my next time when it falls asleep!

I did capture a moment of beauty today: when I came home from the doctor, it was pouring. As I got out of the car, I noticed one of the many pine trees at the house carrying many baby cones. I just had to take a picture: the beauty of raindrops surrounding many baby pine cones sprouting from a branch. So precious to capture small moments in life.
