broken heel recovery

I fractured my right heel 6/1/09 jumping off a 7 ft railing, over a bush, in the dark, with sandels on. No insurance. Got a pair of crutches. Went to er 1 week later. They took x-rays, put foot in a splint. From june 28th to july 3rd, the pain was excrutiating as the bone and foot was healing. I found a docter who works out of his home, $25 dollars for 20 minutes of pt-it helps alot. He said I also sprained my foot, hence the stiffness and soreness. Now 9 weeks later, I am putting weight on it by practicing getting out of a chair- that is a good excercise, and swimming. I am a painter, and I am hoping to get to work soon. I told everyone that God would heal it, and so far he has. Other good exercises are wiggling your toes and kicking your heal out while lifting your toes. The hospital reduced my bill dramatically. My prayers are with those with broken bones.
