I MADE IT THROUGH ANOTHER WINTER! Hallelujah! Tonight we turn our clocks forward for Daylight Savings Time!

For me, this means: More sunshine, time outside, time with my animals, time to BBQ, time for appointments and outings for Wayne and me (don't have to be home so early to put up the goats), time outside after my hubby gets home from work, more dopamine, serotonin, energy at night and it marks a turning point day for me to look forward to Spring and Summer, warmer weather and swimming!!! ... Must I go on?

♡☆♡☆♡☆♡☆♡ Wahoo!!!!

PS) For all of you who whine about losing an hour of sleep, try to remember you gain one later. It is worth the 238 hours of extra sunshine in the evening when you get off work and your kids get out of school!

Thank you everyone, for your prayers and well-wishes about my broken ankle 2 days after Christmas! Many are asking how my ankle is doing and sharing their fracture success stories. So I thought I would post a few more details of my situation.

I would like to explain that due to Multiple Sclerosis, I have had weak ankles and due to Lyme, joint issues. For 15 years, I have been dealing with loose ligaments in my ankles, causing multiple sprains and injuries. The last 2 sprains landed me in years of horrific pain, PT, ultrasound, lazer and Prolotherapy. Prolo is the only treatment for loose ligaments, as PT only helps the muscles and tendons.

Somewhere along the way, I must have fractured the ankle. So, after years of the tendon pulling on the joint, it broke off a chunk of the joint when I simply stood up.

As a result, my ankles will remain a ticking time bomb to future injuries and breaks, from just standing or walking. Therfore, I am not just up against a broken bone that will heal. My ankles haven't healed after 15 years.

Needless to say, going to the bathroom, getting food, feeding the dog 8 times a day and taking a shower is quite the endeavor with MS, Lyme AND trying not to put weight on my ankles.

All in all, as you can see, this is not normal case of a broken bone that will heal and I go on. Nonetheless, I am forging ahead as best I can and trying to keep the hope I will be able to stand and walk again without continued injuries and breaks.

Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers!! I REALLY NEED THEM!!
