Thanks Bliss! I'm feeling pretty good. Still some soreness around my ankle.

Marge, you're a nut! (Those are the best kinds of friends!).

I'm ready for a party!

My enforced bed rest ends when I wake up in the morning. I will get to go to church for the first time in weeks. I'm glad we can go for obvious reasons (worship, fellowship, talking to friends, etc.), but I am also glad since we will be leaving on our trip Wednesday and won't be in church the next two or three weeks.

I feel exponentially better every day, so that is great! My legs still have some pink areas (sometimes very light, sometimes a little darker), but the heat is gone from them. The lump on my ankle is going down and doesn't hurt or itch as much. I have a few pairs of compression stockings, which I need when I am not lying down. I will lie in the back seat of the car for part of the trip, as I have said, and I won't be doing any of the driving.

Thanks ChefJune! It felt so good to be out and about a little today. After church we had lunch at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Then we did a little shopping at Best Buy. My leg didn't give me any problems, but I had gone so long without any activity that my back started bothering me a little (the muscles in the lower back, and my spine felt like it was compressing at the bottom). I can feel that I have lost a lot of muscle in my legs. I need to build those muscles back up, but I know better than to try to do it all at once. The weird thing was that when we got home and I stepped out of the car, the bottom of the other foot was hurting (almost like plantar fasciitis). It is still tender. I guess it all just goes along with the saying, "Use it or lose it!" I have lost between 12 and 15 pounds over the last few weeks, which is good.
