2 weeks in a boot. She said 4-6 to heal. Stupid
It will heal faster breathing nitrox.

It's all black and blue now, the other side swelled too, but I can tell it's starting to heal. I've been icing it twice a day and keeping it elevated as much as possible and taking ibuprofen to reduce inflammation.

Basically following the research. If I recovered in thirteen days that would be remarkable.

I hope you have better luck than me. I rolled my ankle really bad in January playing racquetball, and I still can't play. Stay in the boot as long as the Doctor tells you to, I wish I had listened.

NW out of Anclote today in 45-55 was ttb in some spots and fishy. No signs of red tide or the hurricane. Water temp dropped a few degrees since we were out last.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Nice fish dkay! We might have seen you out there, NW of Anclote today. Vis was a superb nearly ttb in about 55' but less fishy than this spot was a few weeks ago. A big party boat came out to hang around where we were diving so I'm gonna say we weren't on virgin ground. Came in to 45' and water clarity was OK at maybe 15-20' horizontal. Ran into an enormous greater hammerhead (again) which was interesting to see.

I took my first AJ. Not sure if I'll spear another, have to try eating this one (gonna smoke it), but I wanted to get on the board with them so check that off the list. Fork length I think was 37".

There were definitely some cool areas of water after getting down 10-15'.
