Today is October 9th which means yesterday was October 8th. I had thought about it as it approached but I guess it slipped my mind when it actually came to be “today”. Yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of a big day in my life.

This is our first time in this road since the collision. Nearly 6 months have passed. I nearly had a panic attack but I kept it together. The tire marks are still visible. My ankle is still recovering.

The car collision that broke all three of my ankle bones was on Saturday, October 8th 2011 around 3:15 in the afternoon. I remember some parts so vividly but others have faded with time. That’s a good thing. That means I’m healing in a lot of ways.

My ankle isn't broken anymore. Fractures are barely visible ^^

I went back and reread some of my blog posts from the time of my surgery and all the recovery I went through. I have come a long way which makes me very proud and thankful. I’ve had so much support and it has meant the world to me. I’m also saddened that I’m not back to my normal life yet. The tendonitis that developed last year is still impacting me a lot. I’m having surgery in 3 weeks to remove some of the hardware in my ankle. That will help with some of my symptoms but that finicky tendon worries me.

If I can find some sparkle in every day, then I’m doing alright. I may not be walking miles but I can still smile and enjoy life. Thank you all for your support.

Take care and be well.
