Sounds so much better than staying home and going to PT!

You're right. I think the best thing for it is to keep moving. I fell the 1st day out and got a bad bone bruise from landing on a rock with my shin. My leg swelled up like a balloon. It hurt but we kept going for the week we planned to be there. I didn't have anywhere near as much pain while out walking a lot as I did when I got in the car to go home and all the swelling settled in my ankle. I probably should have stuck my leg in the lake at 1st for a while to keep it from swelling as much, though. Glad you had a good trip. Spending time with the kids is worth a little pain. They grow up and don't have time anymore.
