Hey there. I'm Heather, I'm 27, and on May 21, 2006 I broke my ankle in a freak hugging-related accident. Yes, seriously. To read my post on breaking my leg, click here.
Being bedridden for two weeks afforded a tech-savvy girl like myself a fair amount of time to research her injury on-line. Usually these forays return exotic fruits of internet deliciousness, but not this time. In between exaggerated accounts of extreme sports injuries and eBay auctions for lightly-used memory foam pillows, I couldn't seem to find what I really wanted: an honest account from an actual person of what to expect when you break your leg.
So, here's my story. I plan to update this blog for at least
the next six to eight weeks well, apparently it'll be more like the end of August or beginning of September or until I can wear high heels again. Hopefully you'll find it entertaining, and if you're lucky enough to have a similar injury, you'll find some information and resources that'll help.
One of these days (when I'm back at a computer with web design software) I'm going to update my personal website. If you've got questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at heather at heatherlibby dot com.
