Not so happy news!

Just wanted to do a quick post that I have hurt myself. 
 Justin (our son) was over last night and brought his cute little dog. It
was raining hard, I let her go out to go potty and then back in. She loves to
chase around the house so I was chasing her and fell in the kitchen. 
I guess the floor got a little wet and was slippery.   I either
have a very bad sprain or I broke my ankle. I have it in an air-cast now and
elevated. I also have a boot so I may use that as well.
Right now moving slow with crutches and the swelling is
coming down.
Lol, when it rains... it pours.
So, I have no idea when I will be up and running again. Literally, trying to
stay still and watch a 12 month old is a little hard, but I am managing.
My toes are not swollen and I can stand on it. I hurts a little when I put all
my weight on it sometimes. That is why I don't think it is broken. Since I
have broken that leg before, I know they can't do anything until the swelling is
down anyways.
Plus, I have no insurance and walking or limping into urgent care is a $1200
bill right off I checked. Not to mention all the doctor bills and x rays. So I
am waiting to see if I need it. My friend Evelyn knows that I can take a lot of pain.
The first time I broke a leg I walked on it 40 hours a week for a week at work
on a sales floor. The other time it was so painful I had to go in the next
morning. So far I am not sure it is not like either of the other times. Will
keep you all posted.
Thanks

Tammy

  4. Sorry to hear about your fall! I was able to walk on my broken foot for a whole month before I finally broke down and went and got it checked out... By then they couldn't do anything anyway but it did heal pretty well so it was a soft boot cast and trying to keep off it as often as possible. So it could be broken and if it hurts still after 3 -4 days go in and have it looked at someplace like a prompt care can do x rays and it won't cost an arm and a leg... Good Luck!
