Today, I spent 5+ hours in the ER. There were concerns that my incision was infected. The surgeon doesn’t think it is infected, but gave me an antibiotic as a precaution. Great, more drugs.
The doctor also noticed the top of my foot is still swollen and now red (for about a week). He did some poking around on it. Very painful. Like make me cry instantly painful. He sent me off for more X-rays to make sure they hadn’t missed something else broke in my foot. Thank goodness! Doctor thinks it is just a bone bruise. Guess it will be fine as long as no one pokes at it anymore!
The hours in my room at the ER were spent watching today’s manhunt. It was so unsettling watching the drama unfold. I can only imagine the terror the residents of Boston were going through. And the pain and memories that they, as a city, and runners, as a community, will carry from Monday’s tragedy.

I know my ankle and the inconvenience it has caused me is just that. An inconvenience. I will run again. I will heal. I am blessed. That is my wish for our nation. For Boston. For our running community. I wish for us to heal.
