Human’s body is a work of art.

Today im writing this coz i hv this thought a while ago. 4 weeks ago i hv a sprained ankle when playing basketball. I jump n i landed on someone’s foot i guess. I dont really remember. All i know is that i fell like a building been demolished. It really is painful at that time. Although this is not the first time i got sprain ankle, but this one was pretty bad. I cant even put any weight on my left foot that sprained.
Im with my wife at that time, but there is not much she can do bout it. So i was picked up by my brother n bro in law coz i cant even walk.
At home i was treated with this massage or in indonesian its called urut. As u may know it was painful like h*ll. But most people said it would heal faster than in hospital. Yeah right…but it hurts as well.
After the 15 minutes of a painful massage, i feel not much of a good result. Still cant put any weight on my left foot. So i guess this is serious one.
After i searched on google bout sprained ankle, i found out that i hv a grade 2 out of 3 on this one. N the minimum time to totally heal is 4-6weeks. Yeah this is serious indeed.
So i passed the days walking with a 4 leg crutch n 1 foot (right). Walking around the house is exhausting.
1st week then the 2nd week, my left foot is getting better everyday. The swelling is almost gone n the pain was decreasing.
So the 3rd week im starting to put my left foot down on the floor when i walked. So i hv to put weight on it n so the muscle wouldnt stiff.
Just so u know all that time, most of the stuff im doing was helped by my wife :).
In the end of the 3rd week im starting to use 1legged crutch. N can put more weight on my foot. Just keeping the spirit to heal, the 4th week that is now, at last i can put down the crutch n walk in both foot 🙂 although still hv a lil bit swelling. But now i can drive again, n went somewhere whetever i want. Still hv a recovery to do anyway.
Well..im thinking that what a tremendous work of art our body is. Its like it can heal itself with no medicine like wolverine :D. So God give us this body is really a blessing. So take the most of it n  a really good care of it.
