Well it has happened yet again, I am laid up! So it all started yesterday morning, Chuck and the kid were going to take me to work. Having only one vehicle, and me working so much Chuck is going a little stir crazy, and the kid had her first day back at gymnastics since holiday break. Everything was going smoothly, we were on time and then I went to take the kid and my work stuff out the to vehicle and I slipped. The kid hit her head pretty hard on the ground and I hurt my ankle enough so I could not walk. So it was off to the emergency room. The kid was given a CAT scan just to make sure there was no head injury- all clear, and I was given ex-rays, nothing broken but boy did it hurt like hell. The doctor wanted me to go see a orthopedic physician to make sure there was nothing wrong with the ligaments. So back to the house, made some calls, and then Chuck headed back up to the hospital to get the ex-rays, then back to the house to get the kid and I and off to yet another hospital. The orthopedic doctor said it was a sprain, I have to wear a splint and be on crutches for 2 weeks and then if everything is going well it is a walking boot for another 2 weeks.
So my wanting a time out from accidents lasted just over a month! I have never had this many problems- there must be something in the air or water up here that does not like me. Chuck still has one more week before classes start, so that helps, next week should be interesting. Although I think that kid kinda likes that I need her help so much.
