Give up the lace up boots/ shoes and get high top hiking boots or military boots to walk in once/if the healing ever They will support your ankles a lot better and give you training on where to keep your feet in line with your leg.

On the clumsy note, I have a story about my daughter since I am so sure

She's 21 now, but when she was 10 and our youngest daughter amber was just getting good at walking she had a run in with the hallway gate. You know those contraptions we put up to keep the babies out of certain areas.. Well, Alicia was coming out of her room and went to step over the gate, tripped and fell knocking the gate down. She gets up, goes back to her room side of the gate, puts it back up and tries to go over it again and falls again. At this time I turn to see what is going on and see her putting it up again from her room side of the gate. She does it again!!! lmbo I see her going back on her room side AGAIN an motion to the wife to come see. She does it again, but this time stops and looks at it and finally stays on the side she is wanting before putting it back up..We both look over and Amber is sitting there looking at her with this dazed and confused look....We laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes.

She had to figure it out on her own else the learning skills would have been lost.
I have a couple of hilarious moments she has provided us that would have you in tears from laughing.

Sorry to hear about the ankle and hope you enjoy the bubble wrap I'm sending in my

Owwwww knee injuries suck! And I can't even imagine how. Bad the two together suck

I'm with you on the clumsy. No grace, and if its there to trip over i will.

I was off for 8 months when snugly split my kneecap, I tiedmy leg to the saddle and went on trail rides :)

Thanks everyone :)

My hubby says no more green grass for me LoL And he seconds the bubble wrap.

Roaddy: thats a great story :) my kids provide me with similiar laughs. For example my son was about 2 and was playing with a wooden spoon. He stuck the spoon between the bars of my foot board on my bed. Well needless to say he got it stuck. Problem was he had the spoon turned sideways and could not figure out how to turn it and get it out. It was hilarious to watch him figure it out :)
My daughter is nick named Grace because like her momma she can trip over nothing. She is my non horse child and I think its because no matter how hard she tried she just couldnt balance well. Ive seen her sitting completely still and manage to fall LoL scary part is that she is a gymnast :)

Analisa: split kneecap sounds awful :( glad your healed up from that and I know how old knee injuries come back to haunt you. It sucks. They think the reason I hurt my knee so easily is because of a past serious knee injury as a young child. I wore a brace as a teenager. Im also investing in a new brace and good hiking boots :)

Ill go months without injury and usually I just get a bruise, nothing major, and forget about it the next day but this time I managed to do some damage...

Im thinking about climbing in the saddle this week. We have an old QH who is a good baby sitter So I dont have to worry about getting hurt or making things worse :)

Hope everyone is having a good holiday :)
