until somebody gets hurt….and that somebody is generally my klutzy self! But this time it was still fun and games after my wipeout!
I spent this beautiful weekend up at Mad’s cabin in Shelton with most of my Baby Corner family. I have lots of photos to share, well technically just a couple from my phone that I snuck when Mad wasn’t looking since the cabin is a “technology free zone”, but Stephanie took tons of and as soon as I am able to get them from her I’ll share them. For today I thought I’d share my war wound that I proudly received:
The boat was able to have two inner tubes going together and the first time I went with Chris’ son Ethan. We both lasted a VERY longtime before we crashed into each other and I sadly was the one thrown into the freezing cold water.
After the boat came back to get me and I climbed back on the boat I realized my foot didn’t feel so good. I somehow managed to whack/catch it on the towline was I was tossed off. It immediately hurt but I wasn’t about to let a chance to tube again be missed and I climbed right back on.
After we got back to the cabin my foot was pretty swollen and painful. Wanda’s husband is a Physical Therepist and said it looks like a pretty good sprain. Luckily it doesn’t seem to bother me too much and hopefully can avoid a visit to the doctor.
The injury didn’t keep me down long as I was back on the tube again today. Now I have a nice bruise to remind me of a fun weekend!
I’m actually writing this post from the ferry and thought I’d end with a couple of photos:
I’m pretty sure I live in the most beautiful place on earth!!
Until next time…
Update 8:52pm: By the time I got home (I wrote this post on the ferry) my foot had swollen to twice the normal size and my bruising was crazy. At that point I talked to my mom and decided to go into urgent care to have it X-rayed.
I went in and doctor agreed it’s either badly sprained or possible fractured. Unfortunately they didn’t have an X-ray tech and I either had to go to the ER for X-rays or come back tomorrow. I decided to avoid the hour wait at the hospital and will just go back first thing in the morning. They did put me in a walking boot so hopefully that helps stabilize it.
Update 7/20/2015: This morning I went in for an x-ray and luckily it’s NOT broken, but is badly sprained. After a busy day on my feet at work I’m home with my foot up and icing. My foot looks even more black and blue and now my entire leg is swollen to twice the size of normal….it’s really lovely!
In addition to the sprain, I had an allergic reaction to something and have like 50 thumbnail sizes itchy welts to enjoy. Needless to say I’m not loving life right now…
