UPDATE AND WITCH HAZEL

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and concern! As you can see, I am making progress. I only have one brace, one crutch and I can flex both feet. I am getting weary of sitting around, and wearing this brace is very HOT! I know....a cast would be much hotter, so I am thankful! Now about Witch Hazel....you can buy it in the stores by the rubbing alcohol: (although it is more expensive.) If you soak a wash cloth with Witch Hazel and lay the wash cloth on the bruised area for 5-10 minutes 3-4 times @ day, it will help disperse the blood in the bruised area, healing your bruise in half the time and you will not be hurting as long. SO helpful since both my ankles were bruised quite badly. But for now I am on the mend!
