I made it back to my home base in Livingston. This is a down-time period -- I'm getting my medical and dental checkups, vehicle inspections, and taking care of whatever bills and paperwork are left over from my accident. I still had paperwork from Blue Cross and the Littleton Fire Department (for the ambulance ride) to complete. I'm expecting a few more bills to come in, although I've taken care of the big ones -- the hospital charges alone were over $22,0000, but I only had to pay them a little over $500 -- glad I have insurance!
Regarding the ankle, I'm almost back to normal. I don't use a cane or ankle brace anymore, but I do limp a bit, especially when I'm tired. I did go to line dancing for the first time yesterday, and made it through most of the dances. I sat down a couple times to rest when I was getting tired, or when certain steps bothered me. I still tire easily, but my stamina is increasing day by day.
The temperature here has been in the 80s during the day, and cooling off nicely at night. A cold spell came through yesterday, and the temps dipped into the 30s last night. While I won't get much sympathy from a lot of you "up north," the temps should be back up in the next few days, in time for Halloween. I remember many chilly Halloweens when I was a child in Michigan -- our Mothers always made us wear coats over our costumes, which was just a mood-killer! But here the little ghosts and goblins should be just fine.
