2/13/2009

So this is the first post from my new phone, so I hope this works well. Bruce and I got blackberry curves and they are sa-weeeet!!!

Anyways, I'm here to tell you about my Friday, the 13th...
It was about 230 in the afternoon. Bruce, Oliver and I were heading into Mia's school for her Valentines Day party. Bruce was handling Oliver and I was carrying the 4 boxes of cookies that we just picked up at Buehlers. We are almost to the front doors and I all of a sudden slip my left foot off the edge of the sidewalk and snap it sideways. I fall, the boxes of cookies go flying and I land on my right knee.
Now I must admit, when I fell down like a ton of bricks, I wasn't sure I was going to get back up. First was the clicking pop I heard, then the snap inside my ankle I felt. Then came the utter embarrassment I felt from the other mothers making their way into the school as well. Some were very nice and asked how they could help. Others just looked at me and kept walking. Then the best one was the older lady that was carrying a box and goes, "oh geez, let me go put this down and I'll be right back to help you." She never came back!!! Didn't need her but SHE NEVER CAME BACK!!!
Saw her when we were signing in and she wouldn't even make eye contact with me.
So after we got back home, the pain was just getting worse and worse. Bruce told me I better go to the emergency room, so I did. Nothing is broke, just a really bad sprain. Went to the regular Dr.'s yesterday and he ended up referring me to the orthopedic guy because he didn't like the way it looked. Today I went to see him and he says air cast for 2 weeks and I'll go back and see him then.
So there was my Friday the 13th...I'm living in a bubble from now on....

Oh geeze, hang in there! When I started reading it, I was reminded of mom and her ankle problems! And you never like it when the doctor says he doesn't like the way it looks. But it's even worse when he says, "Oh ... I've never seen THAT before!"

Oh Amy. How embarrassing. The worse thing is that you fell in front of people. I hate when that happens. Sprains can sometimes be worse then breaks so I'm sure the pain is pretty bad. I hope you feel better soon. I told Bruce that I thought he might of pushed you down the stairs or something. Haha!

Steve--yes he definitely had me worried..mother in me started my mind spinning as to pins in my ankle, full cast, surgeries...lol...but the orthopedist made me feel better when he didn't want or feel further testing was necessary...we'll see in 2 weeks when I go back though...
