    I'm down!!!

    Well ladies I am downI stepped off the back porch at 100 this morning and my ankle rolled and I heard it pop. Well like the stubborn person I am I just put it off and went on with what I what I was doing and after about 4 hours I couldn't even touch it to the floor. It started hurting so bad I got sick to my stomach.With it being a holiday none of the Dr's offices are open and I can't afford another ER bill so I will tough it out til tomorrow.I have it wrapped in an ace and putting heat and cold altering every 15 minutes. I plan on going on in to work(I have a pair of crutches) and making me an appointment if it is still hurting me.I guess when it rains it pours for me.ya ya ya what will happen next???

    Oh, Rhonda! I am feeling for you. Why is it that things like this always happen over the weekend or on holidays? I pray your are not going to be suffering with a cast!!!!

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      Oh Rhonda - OUCH! I fell down the stairs one time in Germany and suffered through the night with my hurt ankle. I did finally go to the doctors and they said it was just a bad sprain. So, I'm hoping that's all that you did. Alternating the heat and ice is good. I hope by now it isn't feeling too badly.

          Oh no Rhonda! That sounds painful. I must agree with Mimi Pat's advice and your icing. Poor you! I hope it isn't broken and you feel better soon.

            Rhonda-----what a streak of bad luck and school is almost out! When I broke my foot, I was told only ice....no heat, it causes swelling. I hope you get to feeling better soon, but it sounds like maybe it might be broken. Let us know. Wish I lived closer so I could help. Right or left? Will you still be able to sew???

                Oh no! I hope nothing is broken. that sounds suspiciously like my injury. Not a fun thing. i hope elevation and ice give you relief but if not, please get it checked out. I thought about just toughing it out but after i saw my xray I'm glad i went to the ER. Take care.

                        OMG so sorry about your ankle. Hopefully it is nothing too serious. Take the old tylenol and keep up with the hot/cold. Let us know what happens.
