Have you seen my ankle bones?

ankles

First of all, let me just say that I hate my feet, I inherited my Dad's big, gnarly feet and I hate them. Notice the blisters on my toes from the shoes I wore this morning, that's what you get when you wear flip flops all summer and then switch back to cute shoes!
But the point of this picture, really is to show you the horror that is my ankles. If you see an ankle bone anywhere in this photo please feel free to point it out to me because all I see are giant pockets of FLUID. I have put a call in to The Doc to see what can be done about this. I spent a good half hour last night laying in bed with my legs straight up in the air (hey, get your mind out of the gutter!) trying to alleviate some of the swelling. This morning it had gone down some, but as soon as I sat at my desk it started to come back with a vengeance, so I made the call. I'm chugging as much water as I can, eating nothing but fruit and as soon as I can get out to lunch I'm going to get a giant salad filled with leafy greens, spinach, cucumbers, every single ounce of potassium I can possibly stuff into my body. And sorry customers, but yes, I am elevating my feet, on my desk, without shoes on. Deal with it! My right ankle is actually already starting to get better but the left one is still sausage city. I might be making a trip over to Beth Israel this afternoon. I really hope not... I wouldn't mind taking the rest of the day off to rest though!!

So much better, I flushed all the fluid out and am back to normal. Had an ultrasound to check for blood clots but there was nothing so that's good! I have to be REALLY careful about my sodium intake. Fun stuff!!
