My luck, only my luck.
Went to our ward swimming party. Went down a free fall water slide. When I entered the pool, for some reason, my foot hit first in the water. The water at this pool is not deep, maybe 4 feet if that! Nobody enters like that but only ME!
Outcome, doctor said it was like falling off a building on your foot. The impact hit my 5Th metatarsal
Then my foot rolled throwing me forward...
Outcome, very bad sprained ankle. and tore 2 tendons in my foot.
Wow, my foot is really messed up.. Lovely, in bed, trying to get the swelling to go down so I can go see an ortho tomorrow. Wish me luck...
Do you know how bad it is to be one legged, crutch walking fool with 7 kids?
How is the cleaning going to get done. How is the babies going to be carried? How am I going to go swimming with the kids. Lovely.....
The only good thing is that I am in a walking cast. But told no pressure allowed. Wow, walking cast, with no walking. ummm No comment!!!!
will let you know and take photos after I go to the ortho tomorrow, that is if the swelling goes down a bit!
But, did you know I missed a great ward conference?
Did y0u know I missed my daughters 10Th birthday yesterday?
Did you know my now 10 year old spoke in ward conference yesterday?
She spoke on faith, and I was told she cried when she told the story about her father when he was very sick. Their was not a dry eye their that day.
And I missed it.
They tell me she brought the spirit their for the rest of the meeting...
And I missed it.....
