Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 26

I'm grateful that I finally listened to my mom this year and saw a doctor about my ankle; I learned today that if I hadn't seen a doctor and gotten surgery, I would have needed my ankle joint fused for arthritis before I was 25 years old. 8 months post-surgery and 20 months post-injury, I have an estimated date of complete recovery - about 4 months to go.

(For readers who are unaware, I got a 3rd-degree sprained ankle 20 months ago and didn't see a doctor until a year later, when I learned that I had broken as well as sprained my ankle. Because it didn't heal right, I had surgery to fix it, and I'm still healing.)
