Four weeks after spraining her ankle at Sugarite Canyon, Ann got this supportive and stylish brace to help her keep from re-inflaming the injury. Now at six weeks, it seems to be working, and getting her plenty of attention from the style-conscious senior crowd at the post office. She’s no longer using a cane, and we’ve been going for short bike rides around Rancho Viejo for some much needed exercise. Life is not easy with a serious mobility limitation like this. I almost went crazy after one week of inactivity caused by my ankle cactus-spine injury. I can only hope that Ann is now on the path back to full mobility.

Oh Ann, looks good! I hope you do get up and moving around really soon.
And becareful posting these lovely ankle brace shots up on the web. To this day recortho.com, is one of the biggest sources of traffic to my Flickr page. Because of this extremely popular photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/outdoorsie/2185156991/
i love that her toe nails are painted. that combined with the brace makes her look like some sort of weird dominatrix.
You’re just saying that to get the orthopedic fetishists to link here…
isn’t that what you wanted?
Ann, I’m so glad to see your ankle is healing! Here’s to you! Mary
