Ouch!!

Today at work I was typing away with my leg crossed and hooked around the back (because it still gives me a thrill to be able to do that). I probably sat there for more than an hour in this position when nature called. I got up to go the the bathroom. I quickly unhooked my leg (it felt a little numb). I got up out of the office chair and my foot refused to hold me up. I went crashing to the floor in a skirt!!

My colleague said she got quite the view of my white cotton undies as I sprawled on the floor. I have never had this happen before and although it hurt a bit going down to the ground I know that it would have hurt a hell of a lot more had I still weighed 304. Once on the ground the pain in my ankle set in and I felt a little nauseous. I laid down to get my head below my heart (that is what your supposed to do right?). Ultimately I had to pee (what got me out of the chair in the first place) and hobbled to the bathroom. I was OK until I sat for another few hours at my desk and then walked across campus to my car and then drove home :)...turning purple. Cinda (my daughter in nursing school) made me lay down with it propped up and put ice on it. It did help the swelling go down a bit and feel better.

This evening I showered and went out with a friend to happy hour to sit and talk and celebrate the last day of school for the kids. while my foot dangled under the table it swelled up into huge proportions and hurts like a M#$%$ Now. I might actually have to go get an xray tomorrow.

ON a happy note...the conversation was good. They had peppermint schnapps and orange juice and the cheesy spinach dip was divine (not in that order).

xxxooo

OUch is right....please get it xrayed! I have a friend who broke her foot when it fell asleep and she accidentally hit it on the side of her bed. Never felt it until much later!

Oh my goodness! I hope you didn't seriously damage it!

Wow, that sounds awful, hope you heel quickly. I can't imagine that peppermint schnapps and OJ would be good together!

I meant heal quickly!

Ouchie! Which ankle was it? My left ankle still hasn't recovered from the sprain last year. We'll be twins! (hmm...maybe I shouldn't be so excited about that--for your sake)
