One year ago my ankle blew out. It was just a few day before our trip to Spain. I was a wreck -- in severe pain and  pounding down opium-based painkillers. But we went anyway. I hoped I'd get better. I didn't. It was grim.

The doctor told me it would take a year to fully recover from ankle fusion surgery. 

He was right. I walk with a pronounced limp now, and it won't get any better: it's the way the bones are fused. But I have good mobility and little pain; it's a lot better than what I was dealing with before the operation. 

Thank you, Dr. Askew.
