So last week I got my cast, and its been a lot more comfortable. The swelling has gone down and has helped the pain and throbbing to stop. Ill have the cast for a month and then go back and receive a fracture boot for another month while I go through physical therapy. Although getting around is a little difficult, Life has been good and I have no complaints.
Heres a picture of my cast.

My Dislocated Ankle
On Sunday I was playing some basketball with my friends and we were messing around dunking the ball. The Dunk turned into a pretty scary moment for me as I landed incorrectly on my foot and the bone was completely popped out of socket to the side of my leg. I know God was in control of the situation because when I got to the ER they took X-Rays only to find out somehow I had not broken or fractured any bones. I get my final cast on Thursday, for now I have a temporary cast that allows my ankle to have room when it swells. Ill keep you posted on whether or not surgery is required for any possible torn or hurt ligaments. Here's a picture of my ankle when I dislocated it.
