Out of commision..

Post by whispertalos »

ok my year isnt starting out to well, to top off my black eye last month.. I fell last wednesday and rolled my ankle.. now I have an air splint and crutches for 4-6 weeks...UGH

I climbed the hay stack to knock down some hay for the horses, climbed down and had one more step to go when next thing I know I was on the ground and in lots of pain. Hobbled to teh hosue, called my mom to get my son off the bus, and then called my neighbors to come get me and drive to the ER. Dear hubby met us there..and we spent the next 4 1/2 hours sitting there. only to see the dr for 2 minutes..long enough to say nothing broken and we will put you in an airsplint and she was gone....

Did that to my ankle last year in march. Everytime I thought it was better, I would hurt it again. I would be fine for weeks and do something stupid like step on a rock and start all over again. It took a good 7 months to completely heal. Be careful and take care of it!!

The funny part.. last week at work Rick was really bored and I jokingly asked him via email.."If I call you and say I fel and hurt my ankle could you come home" and a week later here I am... lol guess my Karma was listening... :shock:

I'm so sorry you are not getting off to a good start this year. :cry: Playing the Glad Game might help. You're glad you didn't fall from the loft on top of the pitch fork and your glad your eyeball wasn't put out. Still all and all, dang. Sprankled ankles can be a real pain, no pun intended. I sprained mine pretty bad jumping off of the back of a horse(31 years ago). It still pops sometimes and I totally know when a front is blowing in. :lol:

Good grief Kass - that's got to hurt like the dickens. And everyone's right - sprains take forever to heal up right - and will give you a turn when you least expect it months from now - so you'll be hobbling around for a good while. it could've been so much worse - so if that's your karma - then be thankful that it wasn't really after you! Hopefully everyone is waiting on you hand and foot and you're enjoying being spoiled for a change!

Oh, I'm sorry to hear this! Hope you feel better quick. At least it happened now while the weather is limiting our house progress anyhow.
