This is what I've been up to today.....
Two weeks ago, I almost took a tumble as I left the hospital after one of my husbands test. I caught myself before I hit the pavement, and figured I was fine (no scrapped knees this time!) Last week, after my husband was finally home, and I was doing more than just sitting by his bedside, I realized my ankle hurt a bit.
Oh well, I'll just power through it. Ice it a bit, take a few tylenol, call it good.
Except, it wasn't good, and the pain went from bearable to excruciating as I walked. So I went to the doctor. I was told to ice it, take some ibuprofen, and come back if it still hurt. I realized I had to come back when I wanted to cry as I walked down the hill to our office. After the xray showed nothing wrong, I was sent downstairs (man, I love where I work) to see the podiatrist.
Today I learned that there are several grades of sprains, mine being a simple grade 1, but due to the ligaments being so loose (sickeningly loose), I now have a wrap bandage thingy to wear for an entire month, complete with laces and velcro.
The good news is that since I was wearing black today, it matched my outfit perfectly. The bad news is, I don't have enough black to wear for a month.
I'll worry about that on Monday!
