Was walking the office mail over to the corner mailbox this afternoon. Coming back I stepped off of the curb into a grate that was covered with leaves. I twisted my right ankle and went down on my left knee. :(

I hate when something like this happens in public. I got up as fast as I could and got back inside the building. So embarrassed.

However, my knee is skinned and my ankle is swollen. I feel like a little kid with a boo boo. Have been putting ice on the ankle off and on tonight. Hoping it is not swollen tomorrow because I hate missing work.

OWW. I hope you do feel better soon. You may need to spend a day with your leg up and more ice...you might miss even more work if you push it. Prayers for healing.:):love:

Yes...I am really mad! I figured I could hobble in to work today but once I got up the ankle swelled right back up! Hate missing work. Too much to do. :mad:

happylabs I know exactly how you feel, all you need is ice and A LOT of rest because I learned my lesson, I didn't give my foot it too much rest and it had a sprain for like two weeks! :eek: I hated it, Thank God its fine now. And loads of buckets of prayers and good thoughts for you. :) Hope you feel better swiftly :love:.

Yeah, you have to rest up some.
Any chance of getting to work and resting your foot there ??? Or do you have a job where you are on your feet all the time ???

Hope it heals soon and stops bothering you..

I am SO gald to see somebody else that hates to miss work! I thought I was the only odd ball in the world that hated missing work. I have worked sick as a dog, in pain, with stitches in my hand.. I have missed more work since I have been on the river simply because of how strict they are because it is a boat. I know my ENT is tired of hearing me say " I WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK .....NOW!" (He has been hearing that since July!!)

Good news! Went to the doc, not broken, not shattered, just bruised and sprained a bit. The ankle has turned a very pretty bluish purple color. I have nothing to wear that matches it! Went to the doc and they were great, x-ray, ultrasound and some other kind of vibration treatment. Taking it easy tonight and hoping to go to work tomorrow.

Thanks for all your well wishes! :love: :) :love:

Ouch! I'm glad that it's nothing too serious, although you'll probably be sore for a while. A good excuse to prop up your feet and relax. :)
