Awaiting an MRI

I'm grumpy because I'm still awaiting the final word about my ankle. I went to a great orthopedist at the Illinois Bone and Joint institute, Doctor Gleason who spent a lot of time discussing my injury and it was far more professional than the last time I went to a different place downtown. The last place was basically a tiny office with 3 members of staff and an x-ray machine in the corridor. The Bone and Joint Institute was far more professional with a digital imaging system allowing us to review my ankle on a computer screen with panning and zoom controls. He didn't find any obvious broken bones but sent me for an MRI just to be certain that it was just a soft tissue injury. My appointment is on Tuesday and I hope to find out that I can resume training again with ankle support. At least this time off my feet means I can get some hours in on WalkJogRun…
