Today was the first anniversary of my stepping out the backdoor onto black ice when a mat gave way to the ice - I went legs akimbo - ankle FELL off of my talus bone..broke two out of three bones..my ankle doing a 90 degree turn from it's usual working spot. I saw a lot flash before my eyes that day, including, will I ever be able to walk again? I am walking - not the greatest still, after two surgeries - pins and plates and tissue and bone removal/clean-up and a year of healing and exercise and special care. What an experience. I really hope ALL of you are careful when on ice or suspected ice. I plan to make this particular anniversary the last to be 'needed to be remembered'.
Anyway, stayed inside - even though I can maneuver ice with my ice cleats. Made an afternoon of it with the iPad painting programs I have.
