It's been 3 days since I hurt my ankle. It's doing much much better now. The swelling is down and it doesn't hurt much. Maybe I'll get this stupid splint off tomorrow. One way or another, I'll have to as the elastic bandage is falling off. I guess the guy at the hospital was in too big of a hurry. I'm hoping I won't need a cast, but maybe just an "ace bandage"... this things is itching something fierce that I can barely stand it. I don't think I'd be able to handle a full cast without going nuts over the itching. I elevate my ankle, take a pain pill AND ibuprofen and it helps, but not by a lot. So I'm nervous about seeing the doctor tomorrow. I don't want another cast or splint or anything like that.
