Autumn color - and my last Actifit Post for a while: October 9 2022
I had a rather large mishap yesterday, I was out walking on a platform that makes it possible to walk through the marsh in all weather. I was taking pictures of the lovely fall colors, and didn’t notice that my foot was near the edge of the platform. Suddenly my foot slipped, and because my foot was halfway on and halfway off, I fell off, torquing the foot and snapping a couple of bones.
So, I’m going to be laid up for a while with foot surgery to get the bones to realign and heal. So annoying!
But meanwhile, since I really did take some great pics, I will do one more Actifit post. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to get out and about when the little scooter I ordered arrives.
We are seeing some truly brilliant colors right now. I hope it lasts a few more weeks!
It’s so splendid to go walking along the trails and soaking in all the golden light!
Here’s the platform I mentioned. I’m not actually sure what to call it. A wooden walkway? A boardwalk?
The place where I fell is right at the bend. Fortunately I had a soft landing in grass and reeds and fallen leaves.
Once I was able to pull myself up to a sitting position and then hoist myself back up onto the platform, I tried putting some weight on the injured foot. But that was simply not an option.
So I had my husband come to help me get back to the car, which was about 3/4 of a mile away. Fortunately, we had some crutches on hand at home. Unfortunately, they were way too big for me!
So progress was very slow. Finally he went and got the car and drove on the pedestrian only path to pick me up! The good news is that since it’s the left foot, I can drive just fine. So I was able to drive myself to urgent care for x-rays, where I learned that my foot is indeed broken.
So — this is no fun! And it’s most likely going to put an end to my physical activity for quite some time. But I will post if and when I can!

Check out the last post from @hivebuzz:
Wow! I hope you heal promptly! This is probably not a useful comment because you line in the US, but Israeli scientists showed that cannabis heals bones faster and better than natural healing. Unfortunately, you would need access to cannabis-derived product.
Thank you so much for that information! I may have to try to find some! Heh. Wouldn't know how to go about it, but I bet my kids do. Thanks for the great info. Do you suppose CBD would do it?
It looks like Israeli scientists used CBD in their study.
CBD is not psychoactive, so you wouldn't get "high" from it. Here in Canada, where the stuff is legal, there are different brands with different levels of CBD concentration. The scientists used animals in their study, but given that humans also have a natural cannabinoid system, then it's possible that we also use them to heal from injuries. So, CBD extracted from the plant may also work on humans.
Thank you, @litguru. I do think I'm going to stop into a CBD shop and pick up some of that stuff!
It would really be nice to pay attention to where your stepping. Sorry about your foot but I'm happy that your so upbeat about it.
Thanks @seki1! I feel like an idiot, to be honest. And I'm also very crabby, because I'm super active and I do not like to be idle! I guess I'll have to do pull-ups like that kitty cat. 😄
😂😂 good luck
Oh my Jayna that really is bad, while out photographing you have to stand still and watch where you walk...., too late for advice, hope you mend soon to be back out enjoying your walks again.
Amazing photography of fall colours, rest up, recover soon!

No! No! No!!!! You can't be injured! You are a religious walker!
I am so sorry about your foot and hope that it is not causing you too much pain and inconvenience. Gosh, Jayne! Right as we are heading almost into the season of thanks and Joy?
Your hubby is my hero, going against the rules of the road.
Prayers for quick healing and please let people take good care of you! Love to you! Mwah!
Thank you, @dswigle! I will definitely get through this. I now have the most adorable little knee trolley for scooting around, and it is life altering. I'm going to try to go on "walks" using my trolley. 😁
I have one of those! I still have it! OMG I need to donate it to one of those shops!

So sorry about your foot Jayna, I hope you heal quickly. Sending lots of love from here
Thank you very much, @sparklinglolly!
They have that same type of walk here and my son always goofs on me because I am very careful because of the lack of railings! Yikes! I know it will take some time, but I hope you are back to 100% ASAP!
Thanks so much, @old-guy-photos! You are very smart to be careful, and now you can tell your son about my prat fall, and say, "See?? That's what can happen!"
