Update on sprained ankle...

Well, last night I ran a mile on it, and today I played 5 pick-up basketball games...

So, it's getting better!

I went to the doctor and he said I'm lucky I didn't tear anything, because it looked pretty bad. He gave me some Vioxx for swelling reduction and an aircast.

It felt good after the swelling went down, so I tested it out last night and ran a mile on it. It felt akward with the cast, but other than that it's getting a lot better!

That sucks.. I ripped a ligament in mine about 4 months ago. I got a brace for it and wore it for a couple of weeks. I still wear it when I play basketball.

All I remember when I did it was a loud popping noise. I thought I broke my ankle but luckily I didn't.
