Good news! On Friday night Chasen wrapped my ankle/foot with an Ace bandage. By Saturday morning (and steady Ibuprofen) it had gone down quite a bit... to where you'd think it normal without really looking at it. On Saturday it was either wrapped or iced (with a bag of peas!) for most of the day (and again, the Ibuprofen). When I woke up today it was ALMOST normal looking. There is minimal swelling. I have iced it, elevated it and will soon wrap it. It feels a little bit weird, so I don't think I will run in the morning. I want to feel 100% (or darn close to it) before I run. So I have high hopes for Wednesday!
THANK YOU for all of your well wishes and advice. I am focusing on the big picture (St. Jude Marathon) and NOT letting myself get down in the dumps about being temporarily sidelined. The rest has probably done me a world of good, and not just my ankle!
