When it rains...

Last Saturday night Justin and I were just coming back home to my house from a party and a trip to the grocery store at about 9:45 pm. We were just getting our puppy out of his play pen area he stays while we're gone. Justin was on his way out to the garage while I was going to take Buster outside to go potty. I started jogging to the door to take him outside and he ran under my feet, so I went to side-step but rolled my foot and fell off my shoe. I let out what I learned later was a 'blood-curdling scream' as I fell to the floor. Our poor puppy ran to the corner and laid down with his tail between his legs. While my wonderful fiance ran to get pillows to elevate my leg, an ice pack, and three ibuprofen to try to ease my pain. I knew almost immediately that something was broken and I needed to go to the emergency room, so Justin carried me to the car and we were off to Alta View. 

So, as it turns out my foot is pretty badly broken and I will be getting surgery on it either this Friday or next Tuesday. They'll either put in a screw or a couple wires to hook the bone back together. I'll be on crutches for at least 4 weeks, and this type of fracture typically takes 6 - 8 weeks to heal, so I'm out of commission for a while on this one! Feel free to stop by for a movie or something, anytime really, since I'll pretty much be here....I'm doped up on Lortab and its my right foot, so I can't even drive!

Really I'm lucky to have such wonderful family and friends who care so much about klutzy me! I love you all!
