Janelle Hall Accident/ Injury

In 2020, Hall suffered a trimalleolar fracture while she was riding a bicycle with her son. Following this, she underwent two leg surgeries, three plates & 15 screws in her foot-at Allegheny General Hospital under the care of Dr. Dan Altman. For seven months, the three plates and 15 screws assisted“` stabilize the outside and inside of her ankle and her tibia.

“Who knew a simple 2 mph bike ride with my son on this sidewalk would end in a crash that would lead to me being out of work for more than two months now?! Thank you all so much for your kind messages, support and words of wisdom since my ambulance ride at the end of March when I learned not only did I have my first broken bone — but I crushed my ankle in the three main places that make your ankle move — and needed two separate surgeries.
For those of you who have been asking how my progress has been: 8 weeks after not being able to walk at all after doctors put 3 plates and 15 screws in my foot, I’ve finally able to use crutches and put “30 percent” of my weight on my foot.

To be honest, I thought I’d be driving by now — so I thought this update would be a lot different. I’m working with my physical therapist multiple times a week to slowly learn how to walk again (even though my brain and body wishes I could run! 😉) …I’m (trying to learn 😏) how patient I must be. My doctors also discovered a blood clot in the leg I had surgery on — which I’m not going to lie — scared me a bit when I learned what can happen if it travels past my knee to my heart or brain — so let’s just say, when I’m able to walk again I will appreciate every step ❤️..” she posted on her Instagram account.

Janelle Hall COVID-19

Also, she suffered from COVID-19.

“It wasn’t the headache or the fatigue that sounded my inner alarm. It was the difficulty breathing and tight, pinching feeling in my airwaves that led me to follow my intuition and drive straight to a testing site. The results? COVID-19 positive. I did a few double blinks and looked around to see who the doctor was talking to — as if I didn’t realize I was the only person in the car at the time after my nose swab… Shortly afterwards, with different symptoms, my husband had a similar experience with the same test results. Like other families who have been in this situation, we immediately thought of our young children — how do we care for them if we can’t completely quarantine from them? The answer: conquer, divide, clean non-stop and do our best to care for ourselves in the meantime.

Thankfully, all three of the kids tested negative. We have heard of many cases where people with Covid have been asymptomatic. I wish that had been the case for us — but it wasn’t. During different visits to the ER when breathing-related symptoms weren’t improving — between me and my husband — we had a pair of chest x-rays, a CT scan, a Covid pneumonia scare and a test for a blood clot (something I didn’t realize can be a side effect of Covid until now) and a loss of taste and smell.

When you drop a loved one off at the hospital (my husband) and can’t go in with them due to Covid, it’s a feeling that’s hard to put into words. You can’t be with them to take notes, to be an advocate for them or monitor their condition in person— or just be there for support during a terrifying health scare.
This is one of the many reasons my praise, appreciation and admiration for our excellent medical professionals continues to grow with each and every day. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks since our positive test result. The first two weeks were scary – and I stayed home from work an extra two weeks as a precaution, just to protect my colleagues and make sure I stayed symptom-free. I’m sharing this experience f..” she posted on her Facebook page on November 30th 2020.
