"Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for life."
~  Emil Nolde

Using crutches is HARD!!

My armpits are sore...
(even though I'm not resting my arms on the crutches)

My hands feel tender...

Scooting up & down the stairs leaves me breathless...

 Can't believe I have to be on crutches for 6 weeks ~
I'm sticking around home for the next few days!

 Met with the DR this afternoon ~
(who the heck is "Jones"? the Doc told me 
a lot of basketball players get "Jones" fractures) 
Got an "air-cast"... 
old "leftie" feels well-protected now!!


  1. Oh...poor you! I know that crutches really hurt after a while...six weeks, that's awful. Is a Jones fracture the same thing as a stress fracture? I don't know about the difficulty quote, I sure would like to do away with some...difficulties, I mean.(-:

  2. So sorry! You poor thing! I had crutches once, and I remember my underarms hurting. I think that after awhile I got used to it. Take care, and let us know how you're doing.
