Re: Prayers for my DH

Hope he heals quickly!

If it is sprained, he may need an MRI to see how badly. Maybe he already did. My DH sprained his ankle 20 months ago (2 severed ligaments--a sprain is a torn or severely stretched ligament). He was in the 15% who do not heal on their own, so he had surgery in July. Doc said that either way, a *severe* ankle sprain typically takes 2 years to fully heal. I suspect it might have healed sooner had we insisted on the MRI sooner. Make sure he wraps it well in the meantime and uses crutches.

Not trying to scare you, just provide some idea of what *might* be ahead. I was 20 weeks preggo when it happened, and had an 18-month-old, 3.5-year-old, and 5.5-year-old at home as well. Now my kiddos are 1, 3, 5, and 7, and he is still struggling. It has been a difficult road, which seems so silly--it's "just" a sprain, right? I wish!

Prayers your way!
