Don't You Hate That?

Doesn't it always seem that you can never get the ice pack to stay on the one spot that needs icing? My heel pain has transformed into ankle pain. I don't know if it's because I'm walking on my foot differently because of the heel pain, or if I was too aggressive in my stretching, or both, but it hurts :(. It's also swollen today, not badly but enough to be bothersome. Advil has totally cleared up the pain while resting, and I'm icing it (or attempting to ice it) now to bring down the swelling. What a pain--literally!

As a result, nothing much to report today. I stayed in resting my foot except for a short walk with Scout--much too short for her tastes. When we approach the two steps to our outer door, Scout digs her heels in and makes choking sounds to avoid going in. As a result it looks like we're dragging her around by the throat, and more often than not, a passerby will shoot us a dirty look for our obvious dog abuse. She's such a drama queen.
