The right ankle bone's back, but the left one is still gone. I'm not surprised. "Left" has long been associated with bad things: sinister and gauche both mean "left." Not to mention the "left-leaning" political thing, which some people don't like. I'm left leaning with no apologies. Not only do I believe in the things that Susan Sarandon espouses, but I also have severe scoliosis that tilts me to my left.
I wonder if it was all too much pressure on the left ankle bone. So much so that it left. Something about it just wasn't right.
