So, panic sets in!!!

Yesterday I had to go back out the door to get Roscoe who I had attempted to call to come in and he heard my voice as coming from outside and off he went. I stepped WRONG!! Went DOWN hard! My ankle twisted and SCREAMED at me. OMG!!! PANIC!!!! I landed fine and held myself there on hands and knees for a minute thinking all the things that a broken or twisted ankle would result in. First, no work. Second, no play. Third..................NO!!!!! I would NOT make a good patient! Not wanting to get up by myself and risk further injury I screamed for Rich to come get me. I'm hyperventilating at this point. Get inside and feel faint! He gets me something to drink, some ice for the ankle and I sit them wiggling my toes. OK, I can do that. No pain. Well, the damn thing hurts, but I can wiggle my ankle and toes. Breathing becomes more steady. I think I'm OK. Ice is starting to make me chilled, so I remove it and take some Advil.

Reassess. It seems fine. I mean, fine in that it isn't broken or sprained. PHEW!!! Rich starts calling me all kinds of names.....Drama Queen, Pansy, Wimp, Freak Out, Woosie, oh shut up dude, it fucking hurt! I take off my sock and there is a bad scrape and bruise, but minimal swelling. OK, so panic subsided and I'm feeling a LOT better. Oh my, they say some of the worst injuries are on stairs. Yep, doesn't take much. I think that's probably why I freaked out so bad, I had visions of all my friends who have broken, twisted, sprained ankles and feet and toes and arms from falling on stairs or even just one step.

Bruise is bad, but it isn't very swollen and it is OK. YAY!!!!!

So, on a lighter note I have BIG news!!! Bim did his very first real DW planks!!!! I stapled his carpet to flat planks and he looked great. Silvia said time to go straight to two DW planks. Gulp. Is he ready? Can he do it? Um, yep, he can!!!! And he looked AMAZING!!!!!
