Ruptured tendon healed

About a year and a half ago, I had spent months planning and organizing a trip with co-workers to an annual professional conference. The day before the trip, I was crossing the school campus where I work when I stepped on a slippery leaf. I lurched sideways and felt a snap in my foot. After regaining my balance, I instinctively and silently repeated the first line of “the scientific statement of being” from Science and Health: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter” (p. 468). 

I slowly made my way back to my office, but fear about the physical picture of injury began to creep into my thought. A co-worker, trained as a physical therapist, noticed my limping and asked to examine my foot. I let her, and she told me that I hadn’t broken any bones but had ruptured a tendon in my foot, and that the injury would take between six months and a year to heal.
