The broken leg.

Hello everyone,

For my first proper post I thought I'd share something quite big in my life. On the 12th June, whilst out with friends on a trip to the theatre, I slipped and fractured my right leg. When I woke up that morning ready to get the train to placement, I did not think I would visit A&E, or become a student taking a year out because I slipped in the rain.

It has been 7.5 weeks now, and I have 3 days left in my cast, the weeks have gone slowly but have passed and I have learned quite a few things as well as experiencing life at my lowest, here are some of the things I've learned;

My very fetching leg cast.
  • Moving back home is a big shock after having independence,
  • Learning to walk with crutches is tough, tiring and hardwork,
  • 8 weeks seems like forever, but, keeping busy is your best friend,
  • A leg cast gets very hot and sweaty in 35 degree heat,
  • Muscle atrophy is not cool,
  • I used to take so many things for granted, and I am determined to change.
Throughout all of the learning I've done in the past 2 months, what I have learned the most is that, yes, life gives you big struggles and dilemmas, but God is certainly with you throughout, and nothing is forever.
