Oh, the joys of being klutzy

So yesterday night, when Jen came home, she looked at how swollen my ankle still was and announced that we were going to the doctor.

The good news is that I didn't break anything. The bad news is that I did severely sprain my ankle, and am now in a splint (which is more like a half cast so I don't know why they call it a split). I have to keep my leg elevated and ice it still, and I have crutches to get around with.

Oh joy.

And yes, I'm using this icon for ironic iconic purposes.

There was a surveillance camera mounted on the corner there at the Biltmore...

Congratulations. M-I-L waited a week to go to the doctor--and then only after an intervention from Niecelet and Herself--and when she did, she found that not only had she broken her ankle but it was too swollen to put a cast on.

As Mr. Walburg used to say, "Watch your step."

Ouch. That had to hurt.

Probably not as much as being beaten about the metaphorical head and shoulders by her daughter and granddaughter...

The only serious thing I've ever done to myself was a serious sprain, and I was in a half-cast.

Taking a shower was fun - using a garbage bag to cover it just doesn't work.

Yeah, I'm pretty much learning that myself.
